Colorful Creek Street, Ketchikan

Creek Street Ketchikan Alaska

Back in the day, this former red-light district perched on the banks of Ketchikan Creek drew “both men and salmon upstream to spawn.” Summer still brings the salmon, but these days tourists have replaced the Johns, and chotchkie shops now fill the colorful structures that once housed Ketchikan’s legendary bordellos.

    Very nice shot. How did you get a shot without all the tourists? Inquiring photographer minds want to know.
