We boondocked just off the Haines Highway just north of Haines, Alaska. The views from our boondock site are amazing and it is quiet here.
Destruction Bay, Yukon to Haines, Alaska–
Yesterday was another travel day but what a day! Driving the Alaska Highway and cutting down the Haines Highway and you can see right away why it got the Scenic Byway Designation. The drive to Haines was lovely and one of the treats is seeing Destruction Bay along Kluane Lake. At Haines Junction, north of Haines, there is a wonderful, world-class bakery that is unexpected in the middle of a tiny town, far from a large populated area.
Crossing the Border–
Leaving Alaska and entering Canada was no problem. When we went to the border crossing to return to coastal Alaska, the US guard thought I had taken a picture of the border crossing and I had to show him the recent pictures I had on my camera so he could see I had not taken the concerning picture. OK. From now on we will put all the cameras out of sight so the officials don’t get worried. No need to make their job any more difficult than it already is. Otherwise, the crossings went smoothly.
Plans–We will explore Haines today and early tomorrow. In the afternoon tomorrow, we’ll catch the ferry that will take us to Skagway, AK. for more exploring.
