It’s been a week since my last post. I’m in Haines Junction, Yukon right now having lunch. I left last Thursday morning on the ferry, M/V Malaspina, for Haines where I left my truck. I continued on the same ferry to Juneau and then caught a flight to Gustavus on Wings of Alaska. I’m not sure our pilot was old enough to drive let alone fly but we left with a full flight….the pilot and three passengers…for Gustavus to go whale watching on Friday.
We boarded the Taz with owner/captain Tod Sebens and headed into the Icy Straits near St. Adolphus. We saw 30-35 whales. It was fantastic! We had several breaching and one even came up and pushed the boat sideways.
I also saw my first eagle here on a pole and the ferry terminal.
It’s time to hit the road. I expect to be in Tok…or close by tonight and I’ll try to pick up the last four or five days when I get there.
Until next time…..
