Threading the Inside Passage/ Southeast Alaska by Ferry.
Outside my 12-inch diameter cabin window, the Alaska ferry threads it's way along an Alaskan coastline whose distance is greater then the coastlines of all the lower 48 states combined. This perspective from water reveals an enchanting land of glaciers, lush forests, fjords, peaceful communities and abundance of marine wildlife. I celebrate the completion of the 480 mile Alaska ride aboard the Kennicott Ferry in good health and spirits. Nine grueling days on the road brings an appetite for comfortable travel in order to let the mind and body rest. For three days the ferry will traverse the pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest from Whittier, Alaska to Prince Rupert, British Colombia via Yakutat, Juneau (the Capital of Alaska) and Ketchikan- places otherwise unreachable by road.
