Pictures from Ketchikan

This is Mike and Carla's house which is just across the road from the water.  They overlook the Tongass Straight where the Inside Passage ferries come and go everyday.  Salmon fisherman fish from their boats just out the front of the house.  There are four big pine trees across the road on the water's edge where crows and eagles sit.  Yesterday we saw a whale out there too and this morning I watched an otter.

Jeff and Julie on the dock.  Carla's charterboat office is just over their shoulders.

Just about to board our float plane down at the harbour.

The Tongass Straight from the float plane to Misty Fjord..

A partly frozen lake high up in the mountains.


  1. WOW, I love the terrain! And the frozen lake. It's just amazing there - so very different to here! Where are Mike and Carla? Give them my love! Enjoy your last day!

  2. Oooo, it looks so COLD!!! The float plane would've been great! Such a different viewpoint from up there. Those sharp mountains are amazing. They must dwarf you in a boat!!
