These are pictures we took while in port in Ketchikan. The temperature when we arrived was 51°. The average annual rainfall for Ketchikan is 229", just over 19' yearly. And yes, it was raining. We did a walk of the town visiting the various souvenir shops and then found our way over to the Tongass Historical Museum. Then we took the river walk that runs behind the museum.
