Happy MidWeek, we liked
Please forgive me for using so much space, but this is what we did on our Princess tour there:
"See all the sights of Ketchikan, including enchanting Totem Bight State Park.

Board your motor coach for a 25-mile drive in and around Ketchikan. See Alaska's busiest waterfront, bustling with floatplanes and boats, and drive by infamous Creek Street, Ketchikan's former red-light district. Travel along scenic North Tongass Highway, passing salmon canneries and a pulp mill that was once the largest of its kind in the world.

Then your guide introduces you to Totem Bight State Park, where an awesome sight awaits. After walking along a winding trail through a forest of mighty hemlock, you come to an old Indian campsite filled with colorful totem poles each representing a fascinating tale. Learn about Native Alaskan culture at the park's Ceremonial House. Enjoy a cookie at the Alaska Totem Trading Company before your return to town."

It was just like Princess had said only better. We like all of Alaska that we saw, from Fairbanks to Anchorage to Vancouver.

Love you collages and the word embiggen...lol.

I couldn't travel in a tiny little RV like that with myself, let alone someone else. But I'm sure they're having a blast.

Please stop by and say hi and Happy Wednesday.

gengen said...

They all looks awesome shots...happy watery Wednesday...

Robin said...

I'm so jealous - my parents were out in Ketchikan last year (2 years ago?) with their trailer, they had such an amazing time. I'd love to see Alaska myself someday.

Nice collage! Beautiful photos.

Oh so blue, blue, blue. Sounds like your sis is having a great time in their small space. I love the shot with the mountains in the back.

Suburban Girl said...

They must have a lot of patience and really, really love each other! The shots are beautiful...looks like a place my husband and I would love to go.

I like the solarize effect. I looked at your previous post and some of the effects there are pretty cool! Especially the spherize.

Thanks for posting at MWBs.

Your photos perfectly captured some spectacular scenery. This was a lovely post. I hope you are having a great day.

the original mosiac is stunning, I really like the poster edges, it has the feel of the water color but with better detail and more light in those areas!Happy WW!

please see mine here

It is so beautiful up there. I have never been, but perhaps one day we will take the cruise out of Vancouver up to Alaska. It is one of our dreams. Gorgeous photos and interesting what you can do with them. Hugs, Cindy S.
