First Lookout, Deer Mountain

Me in my oh-so-stylish and completely un-Alaskan rain jacket at the first lookout on a rainy Deer Mountain Trail, Ketchikan



Deer Mountain Trail Staircase

I love Deer Mountain Trail in Ketchikan.  It’s steep–as evidenced by the staircases and little waterfalls.  And wet–as evidenced by the boardwalks and the water running down the trail and everyone’s wet boots and pants.  But so lush, so otherworldly in the rain, so beautiful.
