An adventure of my life time!

I don’t usually like to take picture of anything man made. Well, I made an exception when I saw Totem Poles. They are really colorful and very photogenic. Besides, it is not every day you will see something like this. Before going to Ketchikan, I have only seen it once or twice. In fact, Ketchikan has the largest collection of Totem Poles in the world.

The pictures here are taken from down town Ketchikan, Totem Bight State Historical Park and Saxman Native Village Totem Pole Park.

  1. Our tour guide told us that each of these totem pole had a specific meaning. Unfortunately, I don’t remeber the few he described and did not have time to study more. But at least, I’ve been there and have seen them.

    • You are right. Each Totem Pole tells a story. At first I was going to write down the story, but soon I found out I was confused which pole it was so I gave up the idea. I love the color. It is so vivid!
