The small towns we visited on our Alaskan cruise were charming, each with its own story to tell. In Ketchikan, we attended the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show and learned the history of the area's logging industry.
A lumberjack show? Aren't those like, super-kitschy with the muscly guys? Well, yes and no. This was actually my idea of the lumberjack show before we attended one. There are jokes and I'm sure there are many guests who go for the view of the muscles, but the traditions, competitions, and talents are very much real.
