Photographer's Note

Hi All.

This is the corner of Edmonds St and Washburn St, Ketchikan. As you can see these “streets” are just boardwalks and stairways. There is very little flat land in the town of Ketchikan and the houses were built on the side of the hill, it is too steep for normal roads so these wooden roads put in for access. Anything that goes into or comes out of these homes has to come and go via these boardwalks and stairs. As you can imagine groceries etc become a chore and moving house requires some planning and lots of strong friends!
In the background is Ketchikan Marina.

In WS a shot from the bottom.

See travelogue for more.

Cheers, Paul.
