Exploring Misty Fjords:

The name Misty Fjord proved a misnomer. After all the mist we had on this trip, the one place we expected it to be misty, it wasn't.

Edgington Rock.

Another view of this cool landmark.

Thick spruce forest covers the land. Some aspen, too. Wolves, bears, eagles, deer and elk live here.

The Fjord keeps opening to new vistas.

Kay enjoying the view.

No end of mountain majesty.

Float plane coming in for a landing.

This little raft in the middle of the wilderness is for picking up float plane passengers doing a flight/boat combo trip.

Reddish stained petroglyphs from pre-contact period. Appeared to be bear claws. One looked like the sun.

Back to the colorful harbor at Ketchikan.
