July 14

We rented bicycles today and biked 4 miles out of town to visit Rainbow Falls (and of course 4 miles back).

The trail to Rainbow Falls passes through the rain forest.  70 to 80% of the trees are Western Hemlock and the rest are Sitka Spruce.  There are a few Cedar and a Birch here and there but very few and far between.  The trail has been highly improved and consists almost entirely of boardwalk and steps.  There are 583 steps to the observation platform (No, I did not count them, it was in the trail guide).

The waterfall was 100 feet.  ( Okay no more selfies!!!)

We got back early this afternoon so we will have a chance to do some laundry and get organized as we ship out tomorrow morning to Ketchikan, AK.
