Ketchikan, AK 8/7/2014

On the road again Thursday August 7
Ceremonial Canoe at Totem Heritage Center.  

Button Robe
Tlingit women in ceremonial dress.
Tlingit men
Deserted village with deteriorating totem poles.  
The poles were brought to the Heritage Center.
I couldn't get Phil to stand in front of the largest gold nugget cuz it was raining.

Atop of the Cape Fox Hill

We looked out on the waterfront.  Misty and foggy.
  This is an example of what I wrote earlier that the Tlingit found bottles washed ashore and 
they wove baskets so they could use the bottles to carry water.

Clan House at Saxman Village

Some think this is Abe Lincoln, others think Seward who proposed the U.S. buy Alaska.
A group from a cruise getting a guided tour.  Yes, it's raining again.
We would have had to buy tickets in Ketchikan.  
We have learned a lot from the National Parks.
We rode with Tom and Linda to the coast.  Linda heard about red starfish but she couldn't find them.  She said maybe it's not the right time of the year.
 The clouds keep rolling.  The weather is ever changing.

We stayed at Ward Lake US Forest campground.  Again we are staying in a lush rainforest.
