.............................Ketchikan, Alaska. The southernmost Alaskan city, with a population a bit over 8,000 folks, it styles itself "The Salmon Capital of the World". The first salmon cannery opened here in 1885. We watched lots of salmon battling some mighty currents to get up stream. After a half hour. we decided this group wasn't making it home.
Ketchikan currently has the largest standing collection of totem poles in the world (for some reason no pictures were taken).
|The vague shadow halfway up is salmon trying desperately|
|If you look carefully, you will see the shallows teeming with |
salmon, either resting or waiting their turn to climb the rapids.
