One of the famous (infamous) areas of Ketchikan is Creek Street. Creek Street, a boardwalk along Ketchikan Creek is a former red light district.
I love the sign on Dolly’s House (green building above) which states “Where both Men and Salmon Came Upstream to Spawn.” Dolly’s is now a museum.
Creek Street is now a collection of colorful shops run by locals
At the other end of the street is the Chief Johnson Totem Pole.
Here’s another totem pole nearby.
This salmon sculpture honors the Haida Native carver, Jones Yeltatzie, and replaces a painted wood salmon sculpture carved by Yeltatzie in 1963.
Our shore excursion came to an end and we boarded the ship. The views were beautiful as headed out to open sea once again.
Once again, we were treated with a wonderful sunset.
Next up, Juneau.
