138/376 - Sitka Totem

Totem Pole in Sitka
“Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh”     ~A. A. Milne
Apparently Sitka and Ketchikan vie to be the totem capitol of Alaska. This is one I saw at the entrance to the National Park in Sitka. This kind of thing is one of the few down sides to cruises. We had a grand total of 8 hours in Sitka and even though it is small (population 9,000) there was nowhere near enough time to truly explore this town. They have a national cemetery that looked gorgeous. We barely walked through the park on our way to the Raptor center and could have spent hours there. I saw many "excursions" to see whales and other animals but didn't have time to enjoy them. And the list goes on. I guess this means we really do have to return so we can see more!
