Had a few more totems to share for now. The video is Potlatch Park in Ketchikan Alaska. This is a park right next to Totem Bight state park.
Here is a video that I posted on Vimeo of some totems.
Ketchikan Alaska has one of the largest collections of totem poles in the USA. Totems tell stories. Here are a few pictures of some. I will post more later. Totem Bight is an Alaska state park here. Potlatch Park is another area that has Totems here, as well as the town of Asia man. Then there are various other places that have some on display. During the summer months there are a few locations where you can go and watch a master carver work on a pole.
So here is another quick video I made for the LTE tour in Ketchikan Alaska. The tour is about 3 1/2 to 4 hours in length. They pick people up on the cruise ship dock then take you to their boat. This just shows more highlights. They give you a snack on the boat during the tour. The boat captains get you close to the Totems and the light house. The Totems are one of Alaska’s state parks, Totem Bight. The lighthouse is on Guard Island near Ketchikan.
Living in Ketchikan Alaska I see eagles every day. Rain, wind, sunny skies it doesn’t matter, eagles are out. It never gets tired or old. I currently am writing an e-book just on eagles. I will let you know when it’s completed. Ketchikan is a very tourist orientated town from spring to fall. One of the tours that I have gone on many times is called “The Lighthouse, Totems and Eagles” tour. I will publish an article just on them soon. I highly recommend it. So this clip is part of a DVD that I was making them. On the tour they show you about 10 eagles nests, as well as some totem poles and a light house.
One of the many places local go to relax when it’s not raining is ward Lake. There is a trail that you can walk around the whole lake. It also has day use spots as well as some campgrounds. It is located about 5 miles from town. Very peaceful and relaxing there.
Have you been to the SE part of Alaska? Ketchikan. Is called the First City, because if your traveling North upon entering Alaska, well Ketchikan is the first city you come to. It is part of a rain forest (a rain Forest in Alaska ? – Yes!), so it rains here a lot usually about 15 FEET of rain a year, so everything is either soggy or green. If you take an Alaskan cruise on the inside passage, more then likely you will stop here. The following video just shows some of the scenery.
