Walker Cove in another incredibly deep fjord with a very narrow and shallow entrance and almost vertical cliffs on both sides, many waterfalls going down straight from the snowy cliff tops.

We are very luck today as there is really no decent place to anchor in Walker Cove and we managed to secure the only  buoy in the entire cove at the site of an old Indian village by a beautiful creek. It is usually quite windy in the fjords from 12 to about 8:00 pm and then the nights are calm.

As soon as we got there the mist decided to  lift, the sun came out and we went kayaking up the creek and around the bay. This may be the best spot of all.

 Of course the water is chilly and it may be why there  is no one here at all, except the ballet of floatplanes, literally crisscrossing the valleys from 8:00 to 4:00 every day when the cruise ships are in Ketchikan. There are often 4 or 5 floatplanes of all colours  in sight at any time, flying along the cliffs or doing a short landing by our side.
