Once we disembarked from the ferry in Prince Rupert we headed off to see if the griz was in Hyder catching the salmon from the river. Unfortunately not but we did find a couple of beavers getting ready for their family... Also in Hyder we found this great dinner at "The Bus"....one of the best we had on this two month journey to Alaska.
This ferry is taking the narrow channels through the inner islands which makes this journey on the ferry amazing and fun.
Well it's time that we catch our ferry south. We saw a number of unique styled lighthouses, amazing glaciers, and stops along the way, such as Juneau.
Haines has three really good museums, on the native culture, the Eagle and other local rapturous, and the sleeper of all museums, the HAMMER museum. Then it was back to the camper to watch the eagles and fet ready for a special crab banquet here at the campground. From early morning to evening we are entertained by the eagle's. Some are the young being looked over by the elders and other are those looking for mates.
Yesterday we took the camper off of "the old" pickup and drove out to see another glacier (hanging type), a fish processor, and watch the cruise ships pass on their way to Skagway.
This is the best view and it's right from our camper door. Then a quick drive up the Chilkat River to watch the fly fishermen fish for the huge salmon.
This morning we woke up to find 72 RV's parked with us at the Walmart in Whitehorse, Yukon. My guess is a journey to Alaska has something to do with it.
Boy, time for us here in Alaska is running short... We just pulled back into Whitehorse, Yucon, to have a small leak fixed in our front tire While here we had a great "late lunch / early dinner" and have settled in at Walmart for the evening. Tomorrow we're heading to Takhini Hot Springs (about 20 miles outside of Whitehorse) for a couple of days before moving down to Haines, Alaska were we'll be catching our ferry to Prince Rupert, British Columbia. The weather is still holding for us and we hope it will be as good or better when we get back home.
