Gnarly Buoy

neglected buoy, Kina Cove, Kasaan Bay, Alaska

Remember to have enough line on your crab pots. This buoy must have been in or under water a long time to allow this build-up of crud. We saw it during a minus tide (especially low tide) and at high tide it went back under water. We will pull it up, since crab pots should not be left in the water forever.

Frog Memorial

frog memorial totem pole, Kasaan Totem Park, Kasaan, Alaska

This afternoon at Kasaan Totem Park...we see the memorial totem pole with a frog on one side and an eagle nest depicted on top.

In the background, through the trees to the right of the frog totem a bit below the frog figure, we get a peek of Naay I'waans (Great House or Chief Son-i-Hat Whale House). To the left of the frog pole, we see the totem pole which stands in front of the Whale House.
