135/376 - Sitka Harbor

Sitka Harbor
“A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.”     ~William Shedd
On the day after Glacier Bay we arrived in Sitka, Alaska. This little town of about 9,000 (fourth largest in Alaska) is very quaint and holds a lot of historical significance. At one time it was the capitol of Alaska and before that it was settled by the Russians after running the Tlingit natives off.

We did a lot of walking that day and really enjoyed the Raptor Center.
