Ketchikan Alaska

Here's a peek at our first stop in Alaska - Ketchikan. Beautiful town - with lots of history.

I know this isn't the most clear photo, but if you look closely, you'll see tons of salmon. It was still spawning time in southern Alaska and the salmon were so thick in this creek you couldn't see the bottom.

Saw this water fountain made of old spigots. I would love to put something like this in my backyard.


Looking down Creek Street, the famous "red light" district in Ketchikan. There's a brothel museum which we didn't tour (we had an outing planned and didn't have time) and most of the buildings, whether shop or residence, had a red light bulb in their outdoor lighting fixture.

More later.

That fountain is beautiful! Loved the way the house hung over the water.
