Ketchikan is an interesting village that one can enjoy by taking a pleasant stroll.

Skagway is not as "commercialized" as some of the other ports, and the train ride up the White Pass is well worth the time. We road the train up, and took a small bus back down, stopping along the way to take photos.

Sitka provided an opportunity to learn about the Russian influence to the area. It is a friendly town.

In Anchorage we rented a car and drove along the Turn Again Arm in hopes of spotting a Beluga Whale. The wind was blowing so hard that the whitecaps on the water made it impossible to have seen any whales if there had been any. We found the quaint ski village of Girdwood and enjoyed lunch. We were very impressed by the size of the flowers displayed along the streets. We were reminded that the long days contributed to this.

Juneau was one of our favorite ports. We went to see the Mendenhall Glacier, and them rode the tram to the top of Mt. Roberts. We hiked back down to the main street and enjoyed a "Duck Fart", the traditional Alaskan drink, at the Red Dog Saloon.
