We drove into Haines for a couple of days and had a pretty nice view of the bay from our front window.
Cruise ships would pull in for a few hours. Tiny Haines would be swamped with the “boat people” looking to spend some money.
Haines has quite a bit of rain which keeps the area very green. We had a nice hike through the woods/rainforest.
We kept a lookout for bears since the bunchberry and…
devils club were displaying their fruity bear snacks. No bears on this hike.
We did see a couple of youngsters patrolling the beach looking for some grub.
We carried on to British Columbia. A day trip to Hyder was interesting We crossed the border from Stewart in Canada to Hyder in Alaska. There was no US border customs so we drove right in the town of Hyder. It looked pretty dilapidated with most stuff closed down.
I don’t think that boat has been on the water in a while.
I guess no one rents videos any more.
Next door Stewart looked like a booming metropolis.
The produce section was pretty scant at the single grocery store. It’s a long way to ship fresh food.
There are definitely snowy mountain peaks hiding under the clouds.
We were able stop on the side of the road for a while to watch this cuddly grizzly snacking on the shrubbery.
After a scenic drive through British Columbia we crossed the border into Washington. Time to find some pickleball locations.
Still really enjoying the pictures. Glad you are back in the States, keep travelling safe and most of all keep the pics coming!
Thanks John. Glad to see no wildfires in this area yet.
Loving the pictures of the bears in the wild. xxGina
So cuddly. From a distance of course.
