More than 60 canoes landed at Port Angeles in Washington on Monday for the official end of the 2005 Canoe Journey.

Crews from as far north and Alaska and as far south as Oregon took part in this year's journey. Now they celebrate for next five days on the Lower Elwha Klallam Reservation.

This year's gathering is said to be the largest in the history of the event. Over 5,000 are expected in the next few days.
