Unfortunately, the lasting impression of Ketchikan is the ever-present & pervasive odour of rotting Salmon probably is because it was past the season and the dead fish were everywhere. Away from the port area, the township showed signs of age but our experiences were all favourable. We even forgave the inclement weather; it was after all, nearer to Winter than Summer.
Experienced the "White Pass" railways journey and whilst it is historically fascinating, the journey itself leaves something missing. It is not a 'must see' excursions but still worthwhile. The town itself is small, readily accessible and worthy of the effort to stroll the streets.
