Mist on Deer Mountain

This is the lovely Deer Mountain trail in Ketchikan on a rainy, misty, otherworldly day.



A Very Wet Trail in Ketchikan

It was a hard to capture on camera how much water was cascading down the stony Deer Mountain Trail in Ketchikan.  Needless to say, I got pretty wet.  But it was a fantastic hike.  The rain and mist made me feel like I were in some medieval movie.


Salmon Swimming Upstream

Salmon are amazing, trying, and trying, and trying to get upstream…so they can spawn and die.  If you get a chance to see this, it’s amazing.  The best run I’ve experienced here in Ketchikan was late in August, but it varies depending on the season, the location, and the variety of salmon.

Still pictures don’t really capture is, so check out my Youtube video to see these guys in action:  https://youtu.be/qL6OIhiJ_QM
