World Travel – Alaska 2012 – Cruise Day #2

Port of Call:  Ketchikan Alaska

We have now arrived in Ketchikan, AK and we have chosen to take a small boat ride into the Misty Fjord National Monument.  This is a wonderful wilderness area that is over 2 million acres in size and we will head up the Behm Canal to New Eddystone Rock.  Lots of beautiful scenery / geology and wildlife all along the route.  Here is just a small handful of photographs that my wife took while I was shooting video.

Here is a shot of the Star Princess I will catch as we head back toward dock in Ketchikan.  Our cabin is just above the fourth life bout from the right

Once back in town, I will catch a few photos myself.  Here is just a few of those shots including some of the Totem Polls and Creek Street that was once the “Red Light” district.  Yes, I did get a few train shots in too.

2011: Eldorado Springs

On May 30th, Lisa and I traveled back to Eldorado Springs, this time to do a little Ghostfanning and getting in another hike.

We will hike along old Denver, Utah, and Pacific roadbed that never saw tracks laid as they raced to find a route through the Rockies.

We will also stop at the Visitor Center to help orientate ourselves to find the base on the old Funicular Railway that went up to the Crags Hotel near the D&RGW tracks above.
