Good Bye, Fairbanks. Hello, Ketchikan!

Haines, AK
On the way to Haines to catch the ferry
On the boat with MJ
Little person I get to see everyday
I drove from Fairbanks to Haines, then spent 2 days on the ferry to Ketchikan. I am working as a guide and doing boat tours for the summer. I went to work the other day and saw a HUMPBACK WHALE. Wow.
Ketchikan is on Revillagigedo Island, part of Alexander Archipelago. The island is 50 miles long and 35 miles wide. It's a rainforest, so it rains A LOT here. Keeps everything lush and green. I feel happy to be by the water again.


  1. WOW! your summer job sounds and looks great!
    no whales around here. just rain and a one totally wet little bird on my window cill. i felt like asking him inside to get a bit more dry..

  2. Whales!!!
    I am thinking about travelling north this year..Sweden and maybe Lofoten in Norway...planing...north has a special attraction to me...
