In Wrangell Narrows

Weather has deteriorated but the run through the Narrows, at low tide, was fun. Lots of fishing cabins on the shores. I stood under one of the ceiling mounted heaters to enjoy the swinging back and forth as the ferry skipper negotiated the channel.

30 minutes in Wrangell

Not in the guidebooks

Unapologetic clear cuts enroute to Juneau from Ketchikan.

Towards Prince of Wales Island

The layering of mist and clouds gives allure to the monochrome greys of this maritime landscape. The longer you look, the more you see. Part of my reason for this road trip is to "bathe in the scenery".

The Malaspina

In port for a couple of hours in Ketchikan.

A more typical way to visit Alaska

The AMS Malaspina is a bit spare as it was pressed into service at the last minute when, according to someone onboard, the propeller of the Columbia fell off. But on deck the experience has been pretty sweet so far.
