As soon as we arrived in Ketchikan we were informed that the area was in the midst of a drought. Turns out, it hadn't rained in a whole 10 days! Oh, the horror. However, our scoffs turned to coughs when we went on an Adventure Kart excursion and spent the whole time enveloped in a thick cloud of dust.
There was also a lot of canned salmon, which I had never seen before. I instantly gravitated towards the colorful stacked cans!
P.S. Please take note of the helicopter casually parked next to a house. It is one of my favorite photographs from the entire trip, mainly because of its picturesque absurdity.
In fact, here it is again, but bigger:
From Under to Over:
A blue from within/ leaks from the ice to rejoin/ the blue of the sky.
My Haiku Review of Alaska:
5 out of 5 stars./ Would highly recommend a/ cruise. Would go again.
