MAKING MY WAY THROUGH THE MISTY FJORDS

My second to last trip to Ketchikan I decided it was time to take part in an excursion.  So I went to the Misty Fjords, approximately 40 miles outside the small town.  The Fjords are a national wilderness area encompassing nearly 2.5 million acres of the Tongass National Forest.  The views were breathtaking and historically significant in that Captain George Vancouver sailed through them in the late 18th century during his explorations of the Behm Canal.  It was then that he discovered the New Eddystone Rock, a product of volcanic activity millions of years ago that stands over 200 feet tall today.  Pretty impressive!
