We thought that Juneau was going to be the highlight, but Haines really surprised us. The drive from Haines Junction was beautiful, and once there we loved the small town, mountains, glaciers and lakes. Getting around was easy, we found everything we needed in town—groceries, gas, beer.
The people of Haines were especially hospitable! Piedad Storage let us store our rig for free during our time in Juneau and the ferry terminal attendant helped us save money on the fare by loading our bikes in the back of another riders truck bed!
While we were in Juneau the first days were sunny and warm, which Don assured us in not the norm. The later part of the trip was gray and rainy, so bring rain gear and get out there!
