I decided to take a side trip to Haines, the drive down from Haines Jct. was just OK. The clouds were very low and it drizzled most of the way. I have a feeling the views are spectacular but there was no way to appreciate them.It did seem that around every curve there were more mountains with snow on them.
Friday afternoon and Sat. morning were wet and cold but then the sun came out so I went off to see what I could see. Saw some RVs loading on to the ferry and wish I had taken a few photographs. They have to back on down a narrow ramp and then around the corner. There were some big 5th wheelers and a class A in line for that bit of fun. Glad I wasn’t among them.
The drive along the inlet to the Chilkoot River is a nice one, spotted a couple of eagles, but since it is too early for salmon there weren’t any bears out.
On the way back into town I pulled off to get a wonderful image of the town backed by more snow capped mountains. This place reminds me of photos of Norway.
