Touring by Ferry



We have been trying to find unique ways to travel around Alaska. This year we decided to go south via the Alaska Marine Highway System on the ferry boat, the Columbia. We were on board for four days going south starting in Haines and continuing on to Juneau, Sitka, Ketchican, Wrangell and Bellingham, Washington.




I was surprised by the great accommodations on board the ferry. There were two choice of place to eat as well as a cocktail lounge. There were movies shown on a regular basis, talks by the Tongass National Forest Interpreter and some very cool people we met on board. By the last night we were walking around the boat and a good number of folks knew Harold's name.
