We stopped three times and this was one of them. The best of them all. The first stop. We walked all over the place, we found berries and we could have gotten lost.
Haines, Alaska is my cup of tea. These people 'tolerate' the tourists, while others 'exploit' them...this town is a tight wire it wont be long before they start trying to 'cash in' with every boat load.
The state fair is coming up and it looks to be fun. We bought one of these posters for 5 bucks.
Salmonberries are not that sweet this year, so they say, because its been so warm and there aint much rain. Well we found them tartly sweet and perfect,in fact they could not have been better.
The strawberries were nice but the salmonberries were better.
You can buy Elk and Buffalo in the grocery store.
There were little buildings,
toys that look lifesize and
phone booths (wow) now this is an antique!
Look - its seals!
