Back from Prince of Wales Island

Just got back July 3 from our adventure to POW (Prince of Wales Island)

It totaled out being 22 days on the road

A lot of time on the Ferry System

Beautiful sunsets

Going to POW we stopped in Juneau for a day and had a chance to visit with some friends

Rode tram up to Mt. Roberts

A lot of cruise ships

The trip to Juneau took 4hrs and 30 min
Juneau to Ketchikan - 34hrs-15min
Ketchikan to Hollis - 3hrs

Total time on ferry going there 41 hrs - 45min

Coming Back it took 32hrs 30min because we didn't stop in Sitka

Totem Poles

In Ketchikan at Saxman

In Kasaan on POW

Long House and Totem The oldest Long House in North America When the men were gone the families would all live together in this house

Inside the house

In the center they had a cooking area and everyone slept around it

I wrote a blog on the whole 22 days there is more information and a lot more pictures there

POW is a great trip and I will probably try to do it again next year
