We left Haines Jct early this morning on Hwy3, through the very cold but beautiful Chilkat Pass to arrive early in Haines, AK in hopes of getting to see bear fishing and the salmon tuning the river! Well, we saw people fishing, no bear at the river & no fish jumping! But we did see three cinnamon bear cubs in the pass!
Now we are waiting to be loaded onto the ferry to go across the Lynn Canel to Skagway.
The ferry ride was only an hour, but that was enough! Chatted with some passengers that were on since Billingham. Three days would be way too long for me!
We watched for hump back whales but were not lucky enough to have them in the area the same time as we were! Maybe next time.
