In this little town of Sitka with a population of 8,000, we took a boat to explore the wildlife in the sea. Luckily, our boat only had 20 people, so we could run back and forth to both sides to not miss any of the action. Aboard for a three hour tour across the water, we are off to see what critters live in the Alaskan wilderness. We were in for quite a day because there’s a lot to see here!
A trip to Alaska, our 50th and most sparsely populated state, is not one of looking at history and differing cultures, or unique architecture, but one of wide open spaces and the seeing the beauty of nature. Juneau, the capital of the state, is only accessible by the sea, with the city nestled at the base of a mountain.
