At Sea: Ketchikan

Like Juneau, the shops in ketchikan are located close to sea level, while many of the homes are high up in the hills and mountains that surround the harbor.  In fact, if you look in the upper left corner of the photo below you can see a little tram that rides on a track up into the mountains.  I assume that’s how people in Ketchikan commute.  That seems like a better deal than the miles of steep stairs that ascend next to the tram.
