On the day that our ship cruised into the Ketchikan port, it was raining sooo hard but I got off because I did not know when I would return. When you visit Alaska, take your hooded poncho or raincoat. I had heard of Madam Dolly Arthur and was curious. I walked over to Creek Street which is a part of... 更多
