Haines, Alaska

Aug 03, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


By the time we arrived at our anchorage in the northern reach of Lynn Canal, the clouds were piled up against the surrounding high mountains. The first sprinkling of rain began as we disembarked for a day of biking, rafting, hiking, flightseeing over the neighboring mountains and glaciers, and exploring the historic town of Haines. The afternoon found us in the Chilkoot Barracks district in town, enjoying the inviting Chilkoot Distillery, where we were treated to a list of libations before boarding the ship for the night.
