About Me
My name is Denise , and I am a Biologist. I love living in Sitka, Alaska because it has incredible scenery, access to excellent fishing , hunting, and kayaking. There's lots of visible wildlife and a good trail system (just day hikes).
You have to go to
Walk the docks or visit Totem Park and watch salmon in the river.
Here's one fun activity you can do
Go hiking!
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
Hike up Harbour Mt. It has easy access to alpines in the summer and offers beautiful views.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
I know of no food here that isn't overpriced and just ordinary. The Mean Queen has good thin crust pizza.
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1. Walk Totem Park - (beaches - rainforest - spawning salmon in season),
2. Go on a whale watching trip (Allan Marine is good).


1. Hike Harbour Mt. or Verstovia
2. Walk the docks and look at fishing boats
3. Warm up with a hot drink at the Backdoor Cafe or Larkspur, or dry off and enjoy the new library in town.

My extra insider tip for you is
Carry bear spray and make noise as you walk the trails, so that the bears hear you coming and get out of your way. DON'T WEAR HEADPHONES ON THE TRAILS DURING SUMMER MONTHS. People do it, but it is not intelligent. You need to be aware of your surroundings in bear country. Don't be scared, just be aware—the bears don't want to meet you either.
