We have lived in Ketchikan Alaska for over ten years. The only way to get here is by a boat or a plane. Ketchikan is on an island. If you want to fly here, our airport, Ketchikan International Airport (KTN) is on another island.
So whether you coming or going to or from a plane, you have to catch a ferry. You can not drive directly to the airport without riding the ferry. Usually its about a 4 minute ride and it leaves both sides twice an hour. This is where there was so much talk about building “the bridge to no where” that was in the news many years back. It never passed so you must ride the ferry and work around its schedule. There are only two airports in the U.S that you can not drive directly to, one in Mass. the other in Alaska, this one.
Once at the airport the view is the best of any airport. There are incredible sunrises during the fall/winter months from it.
During the spring and summer months cruise ships pass right in front of it.
You can watch float plane take off and land in front of it also.
Alaska Airlines is the main air carrier, and Delta brings in a plane during the summer months.
From there you can also see the Ketchikan ship yard as well as Ketchikan.
There are some hiking trails also on the airport island, as well as a lake that you can hike back to if you have the time.
Also both Orcas and humpback whales can be seen in the channel from the airport as well as various birds like bald eagles, Great Blue Herion and others.
So now you know the rest of the story about the bridge to no where.

Time is so important to so many people for so many reasons. Being late to work or to an appointment, some believe is disrespectful, or even rude. Others time is no big deal. Either way here are a few clock designs that make great gifts for that special person in your life or for yourself. They are conversational starters as well. If you have other ideas of clocks that you would be interested in, please leave us a note and we will see what we can do. Thank you.
There are many online businesses out there, I believe that there are opportunities and possibilities online to make money. Many come and go, but what if I told you that one has been around since the late 50’s. What if I said that this business started small and now is world-wide. It offers you the chance to follow your dreams and create new ones. What would it be like to be your own boss. Not to wake up by an alarm clock, to take to months off and to travel the world and have it count as a business trip? What if I told you that this business opportunity would only cost you $10,000 to have true financial independence? What if I said you could do as much or as little as you want, it’s all up to you. What if I said it didn’t cost $10,000 but only $1000, would that interest you? many people falsely believe that the more something costs the more it’s really worth. This is not true. What if I said you could start your own business for under $200, yet with work it could one day be worth thousand or maybe even a million. This is not something new, it’s not a get rich quick scam. Is it easy? Yes ! is it legit ? Yes !. Is it a scam ? No ! Does it take time and commitment from you ? Definitely ! It’s called a two to five-year plan. It will work, if you put the time and effort in. It doesn’t matter your economic status, your race, religion, social status, what you have or haven’t done in the past. None of that matters. Interested ? Curious ? Of course I am speaking of the Amway corporation that started in Michigan in 1959 with two individuals. Today this business has made more millionaires than any other business out there. It’s not a door to door soap selling company. there is so much more from where they started. They care about the environment, the were “green” before it was the cool thing. They have so many opportunities, so many products, they have the best vitamins and health supplements out on the market, period. They are the ones that set the standard for other businesses. Check our online catalog at:
Some people specialize in their cosmetic line, Artistry. Some people just are impressed with their health supplements and share those with their friends. Others want independence rom a job and a boss and have dreams and visions of where they want to be. This is the vehicle tha can get anyone anyplace they want. Want a few hundred each moth ? this can help. What to get rid of all your debts? this can do that also. How far and what you do is all up to you.
Sure there are haters out there. People who will tell you 57 reasons why you cant do this or why it won’t work for you. But do they offer anything better ? Anything that has been around as long ? Anything with a proven track record ? No they can’t. Hope you check this opportunity out. Then put it on the back burner, give it some thought, conduct your own research, prove it wrong. You won’t be able to. This system works. And you can work it from your home, in your free time.
So many people worry day by day what the scale says. If that’s you then maybe you need a different scale. Check out these ideas of ours, that also share some of our photography.
Have you ever had to explain yourself over and over to someone. I heard this saying from a person that I ran in to today. Thought it really says it all.
So I put it on a shirt design that anyone can order.
On the back it says “Don’t Ask !”
