Alaska Cruise, Day 5: Ketchikan, AK

September 18, 2002

Out of all three ports of call, Ketchikan seemed most like a real city. It actually had houses, a post office, Sears, political campaign ads, and other signs of permanent residency. It is the ancestral home of Alaska's Tlingit Indians and features the largest collection of totem poles in the world. It is know as the "rain capital," though fortuantely for us, it did not rain much when we were there. We purposely didn't sign up for any shore excursions and decided to explore at our own pace.
