Hyder Alaska

So, One of the reasons I took the Cassiar Highway was to visit the small town of Hyder, Alaska.

This is wonderful, Camp Run A Muck. Not much to look at, but close to the river.

Two young bears in the road

Which way to the river, which way to the river

“I can’t believe I let you talk me into coming with you.”

Beautiful colors

This was taken from a platform over the river set up for observing the bears as they fish. It was real cool to watch.

Another shot

Someone watching the action with us

“I made a reservation, where are the fish?”

Another bear crashing the party

“I see you.”

A Glacier heading down from its icefield

The glacier ending at the mouth of a stream that runs down the mountain

Just down the road from I was standing

Another waterfall

what you see on the other side of the are called pocket-glaciers, they form where the snow and ice build up

That’s the sign that sent us away from Hyder. It was a nice place to visit.

Next time we will be entering the state of Washington.

Travel Tip:

Never be afraid to visit out-of-the-way places because they may provide the most fun. Always seek out those locations where you will have the best chance of seeing things that others miss.
