Olympic Hotel

In the tradition of the original Harriman Alaska Expedition, the 2001 expedition met in a Seattle hotel for a dinner to toast the success of the voyage. Olympic Hotel, the site of the dinner, is also the original site of the University of Washington. (Photo by National Ocean Service, NOAA).

Jet Prince Rupert

In 1899, the Harriman Alaska Expedition began their sea voyage in Seattle. A little more than a hundred years later, the impatient voyagers of the 21st century traveled by jet to Prince Rupert, British Columbia, to catch their expedition ship, the M.V. Clipper Odyssey.

Prince Rupert Garden

Adaptation is a hallmark of the Canadian north, and this garden in Prince Rupert is a good example. The spot was originally excavated for a government building, but after excavation the powers that be decided to build a few dozen feet away. The excavation pit was then turned into a sunken garden.

Port at Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert titles itself the "Gateway to Northern British Columbia." It is also the most convenient seaport for much of Canada's inland, particularly the Northwest Territories. In addition to shipping, Prince Rupert is an important fishing community, and has a growing tourist industry. (Photo by National Ocean Service, NOAA).
