    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

    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
