…after getting off the ferry we booted into Haines to see what we could find. The fog/mist was low in the sky covering up most of the mountains…but it was still so breath-taking!
We found a restaurant just by chance. We were driving around and found this awesome store that sold smoked salmon… and beside it was a restaurant called the Fireweed. We went up to look at the menu outside… and were going to leave but a man delivering beer from the Haines Brewery talked to us. He basically said we should go in.. and we did. It was the BEST decision EVER! If you ever get to Haines… you NEED to eat here!
Jen got ID’d for her Birthday… best birthday gift EVER! (the drinking age in Alaska is 21)…
Kara had these awesome things…stuffed with goat cheese, prosciutto, and pesto…. so yummy!
After dinner we had to find a campsite…. we were just going on the fly, and decided to try out the state park outside of town. On the way we stopped to take some photos…because the lightening was just so perfect! (I think the next set of photos are my favourites I took all trip…sorry for so many photos..I had so many fav photos but didn’t post all of them!)
Jen and I went to go self-pay for our site… $10 US (Yahoo for State Campgrounds!) and then we took off down to the lake to take some photos… with the warning signs we were hyper aware and alert for the possible Grizzly sighting! (but none were seen…)
…this man was fishing, didn’t catch anything…but so peaceful. The next day we drove by and it was so choppy and not like this at all. Jen and I were lucky to catch it this way… at the right time of day!
Just before we headed back to our camp for the night a random couple came up and I took their photo. Then they offered to take one with Jen and I… the perfect ending to an awesome but LONG day! It started off with the Train ride, then a ferry ride and ended up with an awesome dinner!
