There are a few special parts of Haines, however. One is their fish and chips. They have delicious halibut fish and chips. We got these at the Bamboo Pioneer restaurant.
Another is the Chilkoot Trail and Park. Besides being beautiful, it is very easy to see bears there. We saw a momma and her cub, and then at the weir, two grizzlies were eating salmon and one of them actually stood up to look at us. The Ranger was not pleased that we stopped, so we did not get a picture of the standing guy, but we did get the momma. We also saw some mountain goats up high in the hills.
Finally the scenery around Haines is spectacular. This lake just a little north is spectacular.
Finally, this sunset picture does not do it justice, but it was very pretty!
Haines is not a tourist town, but we found gorgeous scenery that made it a great place to camp.
