"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Hyder

After Skagway, it was back into the Yukon Territory.  We made a stop at Johnson’s Crossing  Lodge on the Alcan for cinnamon rolls, then made a turn to the South.  Hyder. AK was our next destination.  Hyder is quite a ways down the Southeast coast of Alaska, and we took three day to get there.  Our first stop was a pulloff on the Dease river in the Kaska Indian nation.

Apparently, it is a busy place during hunting season.

The next night found us in a Provencial park which I’ve forgotten the name of.  A beautiful site.

Our reason for going to Hyder was to see the bears.  Spawning salmon draw the bears to Fish Creek.  The Forest Service has a viewing ares.

Lots of fish.

But, no bears.  Apparently, they didn’t get the spawning schedule this year.  Three days, and not one bear.

We did drive up the mountain to Salmon Glacier.  Quite a sight.

And, had a meal at the only dining option in Hyder.  The Bus.

Our friend’s dog, Rudder, was bummed that we made such a detour and saw no bears.

  1. I'm really enjoying your trip report. We didn't see any bears in Hyderabad either AND The Bus was closed. Double Whammy!

    1. Auto correct was sooooo helpful, even if it results in the wrong continent!
