Ketchikan Alaska, if you have had the opportunity to take an Alaskan cruise, this may have been one of your stops. My wife and I have lived here since 2008. Ketchikan is a tourist community from usually May until the end of September. We receive many cruise ships here everyday during that time. There are many wonderful and fun tours that are available here, many are outside. The problem is it rains here a lot, like 12 to 15 FEET of rain a year. So when people get off their ships there is a good chance it could be raining. Living here for so long, we know the places that most tours do not take their customers, we know “the locals areas”. Also living here so long I have enjoyed photography, so over the years I have several thousands of pictures. While I can only enjoy so many, we thought it would be a good idea to make some videos,, over the years of some that we observed. After making a few videos, we just combined them together onto a Blu-ray disc. The title of the disc is “The Ketchikan most tourist never see”. We just received our first shipment and we are just trying to sell them by word of mouth, they are not in any stores. This disc has many pictures and videos of whales, bears, eagles, totem poles, waterfalls, nature, lakes, various tours and more. It contains the videos “A day in Ketchikan”, “Kids like Ketchikan” and “The world of Ketchikan”. I will offer them here for $27 (including shipping), selling them locally they are $25. If you have never visited Ketchikan, these will give you an idea of what is here. If you have been through Ketchikan, these will be a good reminder of what you might have seen or things that you may have missed while here. These also would make a great gift for anyone with “Alaska” on their bucket list. Thank you.
The Ketchikan most tourist never see Blu-ray disc
This is a Blu-ray disc that contains many pictures as well as the videos “A day in Ketchikan”, “Kids like Ketchikan” and “The world of Ketchikan”. It has a slide show that displays most of the local totem poles. There are many pictures of eagles, whales, bears. This is the Ketchikan most never see while they visit here.
So we just finished another E-Book. This one is a picture book of black bears that are seen in and near Ketchikan Alaska. Many people travel as tourists to Ketchikan every year, most want to see black bears in the wild. Some get a chance to see them, many do not. Seeing them depends on the tide and the time of the day as well as bears can’t tell time, so they show up when they want. This book is a combination of many years, just waiting until they arrive.
So with all this extra time, I designed a few shirt designs that make a statement. If your interested I can also put the designs on lots of other products, ie hats, phone cases, pillows, lights, clocks and much more, just leave a message, thanks.
My wife and I have lived in Alaska since 2000, we have lived in the SE part of the state in Ketchikan since 2008. Ketchikan has a large amount of totem poles. As a photographer I have enjoyed taking pictures of many of them. We recently compiled some of our pictures and placed them in both in a E-Book as well as in a hard copy. The book can be found on Amazon. If you like totem poles or are curious about them, please check it out. Thank you.
A few weeks ago, my wife and I were in Anchorage for a week of misc. appointments. One day we decided to drive up to Denali state park (About a 3.5 to 4 hour drive each way). On the way back we stopped at this memorial that we saw when we were driving up there.
As you can see there was still snow on the ground and the place didn’t have any other visitors. I walked thru the snow, a few places almost waist deep, but the end result was well worth it. Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day that we reflect on those that gave their lives to make this country great. Please read each of the inscriptions on the walls. Some are more weathered then others. If you are in Alaska and have some time, if you are driving to Denali State park, I suggest stopping by here and seeing this memorial for yourselves.
