We left rather late this morning for the long drive from Whitehorse to Haines. The drive wouldn't be so long if it weren't so beautiful! We stopped frequently for photos and just to admire the amazing views. A very large black bear added a bit of excitement by running out into the road right in front of our rig. We narrowly missed him. A mother grizzly and her cub raced across the road. I took photos of mom standing guard under the tree where her little one hid, but the pouring rain made for a very bad photo. Along the way we saw another grizzly and a black bear gobbling dandelions. Trumpeter swans floated in partially frozen lakes.
We arrived at Haines late this evening. Such a beautiful town! I can't wait to explore it.
