next is the required fishing picture. okay so this is me a few years younger. that is a cod on the line.
just pictures from various hikes and rambles...
the trails around ketchikan are often boardwalk. there is a great deal of delicate muskeg...i guess that is what it is called. it's very spongy and when it gets stomped on it just becomes a muddy mess. the boardwalks protect the fauna of the region.
perseverence lake was always a favorite hike of mine. it was all boardwalk to this lake below. i think there were over 1300 steps on the trail so a good work out. the lake on at the end was a beautiful site. as i was leaving they were continuing the trail on up to a great vista. i used to bushwhack my way to the mountain above the lake now you can take the trail. i really need to get back and visit my old trails again.
