Jul 05, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird
Haines, the adventure capital of Alaska, lies at the end of Lynn Canal, not far from Skagway in South East Alaska. Today was a day of shore excursions for us. National Geographic Sea Bird dropped anchor early in the morning, just outside Haines’ breakwater. Following a lovely breakfast, we loaded the small rubber boats and went ashore. There was a myriad of activities available in Haines. One option was to float the scenic and iconic Chilkat River and visit the Cultural Center there, established by the indigenous caretakers of this land. Another group of guests left for a strenuous but scenic hike up nearby Mt. Riley. Still others elected to take a bike ride around town. Scenic flights were scheduled all day from the municipal airport and in a rare event, Haines and the surrounding landscapes were sunny and blue skied. What an adventurous and beautiful place indeed!
