...and rain. Ketchikan brags about being the rainiest city in the country. The rain held off for us as we wandered around town. Ketchikan sits on a very narrow shelf of land on Revillagigedo Island. You don't have to go very far to find that the next street is UP.
In Eagle Park, this modern totem sculpture dominates the scene and keeps the traditional style alive and current.
You can see behind the eagle, an interesting sign of the unique hillside characteristic of Ketchikan. There are three ways to get to the northern stretch of the town. The road goes around, another route through the tunnel, and a hillside staircase.
Creek Street was once the red light district. It gets its name because of--well--the creek. It is now home to funky shops and migrating salmon.
