Aug 12: Had a tour in the afternoon, boarded buses again, Sitka Tribal Tour and Comprehensive Cultural tour, they took us to see Mt. Edgecumbe Volcano, from a distance. Sheet'ka Kwann Community House to watch the Native dancers, drove past St. Michael's Cathedral, Russian Bishop House and Museum, St. Peter's by the See Episcopal Church, Sheldon Jackson Museum and then to Sitka National Historical Park, where we saw totem poles, rainforest and thousands of salmon spawning in the Indian River. Then we were off to the Alaska Raptor Center, where they help wounded birds of prey and release they back into the wild if possible. We saw bald eagles, osprays, owls and others, one of the girls brought an eagle out and talked to us about them, they can't release this bird because of its broken wing that won't mend right.
Aug. 13: We had got on one of the town buses to take a ride through town, the month of August is free which we didn't realize til we got on the bus, we had rode for half hour and then got on another bus and rode for an hour, people are very friendly in this town.

Went back to hotel, got ready for dinner at other hotel, had a buffet meal, back to hotel and then off to get ferry, left terminal 1am, heading back to Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
