We’ve decided that if you can only do ONE thing to get a taste of Alaska, drive the Cassiar hwy to the Glacier hwy which ends at Stewart, BC & Hyder, AK.
These 2 towns – just 2 miles apart but in 2 different countries and timezones – seriously have everything: glaciers galore, salmon spawning, bear watching, fjords, views to die for, the best seafood (served out of a bus), even homemade fudge! … everything but a brewery. But there IS an after hours bar (cleverly called “The Bar”) in Stewart, so party on, Wayne!
This has been the perfect finale to our time in Alaska. The glaciers & mountains & fjords here are as beautiful as any we’ve seen. They still take my breathe away…every time.
Next stop: a 15-hour ferry on the 11th from Prince Rupert, BC to Vancouver Island. Never been – I’m looking forward to exploring the island! Will report back when I have WIFI again. The time is going too fast!!
