Alaska 2013, Day 63, Ketchikan Day 1
Saturday Aug 3, 2013
Last summer we went to a zipline in Hocking Hills Ohio and the kids had a blast. I heard about a zipline in Ketchikan, Canopy Zipline, that has zips that are pretty high and pretty long so we have been waiting to give it a try. There aren't as many zips as the one we did in Ohio but the zips were much higher and twice as long. The zips are over rainforest so it's a pretty view.
We had a great time but it was really expensive, more expensive than some of the sight seeing trips we did.
Below the zipline is a stream with a fish hatchery on it. When we were walking across one of the zipline suspension bridges we saw a black bear down in the stream.
On the way back from the zipline we stopped at Rotary Beach to do some tidepooling. Tons of purple sea stars, limpets, sculpins and tiny sea urchins.
