We took a shuttle to town then walked the shoreline trail to the National park.
Totems were everywhere around and in the visitor’s center.
The trails added together was two miles and passed through a forest of huge spruce trees.
Along the path there were many totem poles.
They were carved by the local tribesmen from spruce and very interesting.
The park commemorates the battle between the Kiks.ads tribe and the Russians who wanted to take their land.
The trail came to a beach and Indian river. We found a pair of eagles along the bank. The tide was out and children were helping their parents find mussels.
After that we walked around town, shopping. Sitka has a strong Russian influence. Several stores specialize in items made in Russia or Alaska. It was a good day with very nice weather.
We dined alone tonight. Once again the selections were very nice if sometimes confusing. We are just not fancy food people.
We watched whales spout while we ate our meal.
Went to the later stage show and then on to bed.
We are passing back into Pacific time zone and will lose an hour of sleep.
Headed back out to sea.
Tonight’s towel animal.
