encountered our first glitch of the trip.We arose early to get into downtown Ketchikan to meet the tour we were scheduled
to take.We were going to Misty Fjords
and were to be at the rain gauge at 7:15 am.At 7:15 we were there and the tour folks were not.We waited until about 7:30 and then attempted
to get in touch with the tour company.We had everything but their phone number.Since they are located in Juneau their number was not in the phone
book, so it was off to the internet café.After several visits waiting for the café to open, I finally got their number
and contacted them.They were very
apologetic and made to calls to find out that the tour folks said they were
there, but didn’t see us.We spoke to
every tour group we saw, and they were not there.
getting a refund for our trip, we rescheduled for tomorrow and decided to
explore the southern end of Ketchikan.We headed to SaxmanTotemPark.The attendant at the park pointed out to us
the eagle’s nest across the street.I
don’t know how he knew we liked eagle’s nests.After exploring the park, we continued on south.We soon came upon a nice waterfall.The scenery along the drive was nice,
unfortunately the sky was gray and overcast after some morning rain.
did a little window shopping along the waterfront.After which we stopped for some groceries and
returned to the campground to enjoy our eagles.
Tomorrow we will try the Misty Fjords trip
