4th stop ~ Ketchikan, Alaska

DSC_1207

Ketchikan…known as the “Salmon Capital of the World.” is located on Revillagigedo Island, south of Juneau.

Here, we boarded a bus which took us to Knudson Cove, a waterfront property in the Tongass National Forest. We were told this area is one of the largest rainforests in the world, second to the Amazon. The anxiety level went up a-bit as we arrived at the Southeast Exposure Zipline and Ropes Park. The cedar trees were huge and the zip lines looked so high!  We received our gear and instructions and were ready to zip.  After climbing the spiral staircase up the 50-foot launch pad, a moment of doubts filled my head as I looked over the edge.  Snapped, buckled and locked into the harness, I took a leap of faith, my uncontrollable squeal filled the air.  Feeling the adrenaline rush from the risk of the jump, speed and wind in my face, was so exhilarating!  The zip to the ocean platform located 50-feet above the water was the best.  In addition to the ziplines, we conquered the swinging ropes, swaying log and rock climbing wall.  What a workout!
