Skagway to Haines

July 28, 2012

This morning we purchase tickets for our ferry boat ride from Skagway to Haines.  The departure time is 4:30 PM, so we spend the day in town shopping and having a relaxing lunch.

Skagway has been quite an adventure and today is clear with enough sunshine to chase away the early showers.

The hour ferry boat ride fills us with incredible views of waterfalls, and majestic mountains.  The crew knows about our situation with no reverse gear and they efficiently guide us to an appropriate parking spot.  On the ferry we meet a young couple who ask for a lift into the town of Haines and we oblige, although the Salmon Run Campground where we are staying is in the opposite direction.  It does however afford us a chance to pick up some groceries.

This campground is perfect!  Our spot overlooks the mountains and the water.  Dick builds a great campfire while I prepare dinner.  There is a fair this weekend, so the town is busier than usual and we plan to stay here for two days.
