Ketchikan - Alaska's first (and for us last) city

14,000 people live here - at least in the summer. Pretty, historic down with a pretty red light district. Great for a walk and photo shooting. After 6pm it's window shopping only (and in many shops - with jewelery) not even that (all packed away). Thank god we had food at home. Could not even find a restaurant, only two little fast-food like places at almost the price of good restaurant. And the few bars were not very inviting since music was loud, people drunk and smoking inside permitted. This is the first town where I constantly stumbled over drunk and homeless. Sad. Other than that I really enjoyed my stroll around this charming old cannery- mining - now tourist place which closes up as soon as the last cruise ship leaves.
