Oh, there's the beach!

As the fog dissipates, the Carnival Spirit settles in for the day off the Indian River delta, the site of a battle between the Russians and the local Tlingits in 1804 that led to the establishment of a permanent Russian settlement in Sitka. Hundreds of thousands of people visit Sitka and Southeast Alaska every year by cruise ship. End surveys generally point to Sitka as the favorite place to visit....something we already knew.

Keep up the great pictures! I've loved Sitka from afar for years, and it's one of my goals in life to get there eventually. I came very close to attending Sheldon Jackson College after high school, but those plans were derailed, and I've been trying to make it to Sitka ever since. Thanks!
