Ketchikan, Alaska

Our last stop in Alaska was Ketchikan.  We headed to the Southeast Alaska Discovery Centre as soon as we disembarked.  We learned about Alaska’s coastal temperate rainforest, where cool temperatures and ample rainfall create a lush evergreen forest.  We learned about the culture of the early inhabitants of Southeast Alaska.  We viewed  a life-size display of a native fish camp complete with smoke house and hand carved canoe.  We discovered diverse ecosystems and habitats of Southeast Alaska and wildlife common to each.   Alaska’s history is interwoven with the use of its natural resources. Mining, fishing, and timber industries shaped the lives and economy of Southeast Alaska.

After we completed the Junior Ranger Program there we walked on Creek Street and up many stairs on the side of the hill on which the town sits.  We found a few more totem poles to study before boarding the Westerdam.
