One Of America's Scenic-Byways
The Alaska Marine Highway has been classified as one of America's scenic by-ways. I took this picture on the way to Petersburg from Sitka. I enjoy seeing the varied shades the distant islands take on.

Getting Around Petersburg
Most folks fly into Petersburg, but I think the best way to see southeast Alaska, is to take the ferry or a small cruise ship. The ferry is reasonable in price and you can bring a vehicle. A small cruise ship offers more information and exploration of the surrounding areas. Whichever you choose, you are in for a treat. Whales are common sightings, along with sealions, seals and even an occasion porpoise. Go to:

Whale-Watching on Ferry
This picture was taken on the way to Petersburg after passing northern ports on the Alaska Marine Highway. Those pesky whales don't come close enough to the boat!
