Alaska 阿拉斯加

1st time-Whale Watch, Juneau.

1st time taking a seaplane- for bear watch at Neets Bay of Ketchikan.

Salmon swimming upstream.
Salmons swim back to their original stream to breed and lay their eggs. After spawning they generally die within a week, fertilizing the stream and creating a nutrient-rich environment for the new infant salmon that are about to hatch.

Dolly's House Museum, Ketchikan
The pale green house was Ketchikan’s most infamous brothels in its day. Operated by Madam Dolly Arthur. “Big Dolly” plied her trade in Ketchikan for more than 30 years. The government closed down the bawdy houses in 1953. Dolly lived in Ketchikan until her death in 1975. Today, Dolly’s House looks much like it did, complete with fixtures, furnishings and an “Employment Application” posted in the window.
