We continued on the Alaska Highway to Haines Junction where we picked up the Haines Highway. We stopped at an overlook of the Kluane Range. We are so happy to have a nice sunny day with clear blue skies for a change.
We crossed into British Columbia and stopped for lunch on Chilkat Pass.
We crossed the border back into the US at Dalton Cache and arrived in Haines. The Haines Highway had a lot of construction and long stretches of dirt road. They were putting water on the road to keep the construction dust down so now our truck and 5th wheel are really dirty. We are camped at Haines Hitch-up RV Park.
We met with Ivanca, a young girl who is going to dog sit for us while we take a 12 hour wildlife and sightseeing cruise to Juneau on Saturday. When we got to Haines this afternoon we saw a large cruise ship in the harbor and Ivanca told us it was a “World Ship”. This is a ship that people live on permanently travel all over the world. We wanted to get a picture of it but Ivanca said it was leaving tonight.
