Woke up at about 4:45am to bright daylight (it started getting light at about 1am, before it had finished getting dark!). The ferry was pulling into Sitka, AK. The ferry was running late, so it was only going to be in port for about an hour. Since that wasn't enough time to get into town I opted to go back to sleep. I got up about an hour later to take some pictures as the ferry was pulling out. Lots of whales today, but they all seemed very camera shy.
At the ferry dock I was naturally the last one off the boat, but it didn't matter. Here I was driving with the top down, 75 degrees, among glaciers and near perfect wilderness. In downtown Juneau I went by the Tonga National Forrest HQ and got some ideas about where to stay the night. After three days on the ferry I was craving for some good junk food so I went to a pizzeria, and ate way too much. Since it's light so late I've decided to put off finding a campsite, and I'm now waiting for a movie, Con Air, to start.
I give the movie a worth watching, but wait for video. After the movie I found a bar where I could have a few beers and use the pay phone. I got to Eagle Beach State Recreation Area a little before midnight, and had camp set up by a quarter after. It's now 12:25am and it's still twilight outside. No flashlights tonight!
