    Creek Street looks absolutely wonderful (and aptly named).
    I think I like the philosophy of life you observed in Ketchikan: ready for the next moment, but not in such a hurry to get there as to miss the one they’re in.

    It sound like a very nice place and interesting to be. But I’m scared of their neighbors as I hear they are not friendly like you said it is not easy to tame the wilds but it is easy to fell into their trap.

    I have always dreamed of going around the world explore the nature and cultures of the world but I’m scared about what we see in some other countries as they are not fans for tourists.

    Will you courage me to me visit alaska, people can be friendly but the forest is not away to far from being tamed. I’m in south africa and wishes to be ther oneday.

    But I like what you have just shared with us and what scares me is that they don’t have the zoo and I don’t wish to find myself face to face with a tiger or a bear. I have never seen them life and I don’t wish too.

    What an fascinating place, and a great trip to take. Very different to the sedate lifestyle in most of the UK. Thanks for posting the photos, and the interesting story of your Alaskan exploration.
    Best wishes from England, Pete.

    My dad used to say something very similar to this: “Prepare for the worst but hope for the best.”
    I always liked how that philosophy combined a sense hopefulness with a dose of realism.
    Ketchikan sounds like an amazing place to visit and a thrilling place to live. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

    […] not unlike the mad dash of an Alaskan summer to get everything done before the harsh winter sets […]
