Alaska's Inside Passage - Vancouver to Ketchikan

We begin our journey up the Inside Passage of southeast Alaska in
Vancouver, BC. Our first stop will be in Ketchikan after sailing all night.

Our travel mascot, Snuffles, gets tucked in every night.

The atrium of our ship, the Island Princess.

We arrive in Ketchikan to cloudy skies but no rain.

Mary and I tried the "zipline" through a rain forest in Ketchikan.
Here she receives instructions from one of the zipline guides.

The old-town district of Ketchikan, featuring "colorful" historical sites.

The port of Ketchikan, with homes lining the ridge above the town.

Cruise ships visit the port all summer long, providing a significant part of the economy.

It's time to leave Ketchikan and sail north for the state capitol, Juneau.
