The Chilkoot River is a beautiful spot near Haines, Alaska. Unfortunately low clouds and fog moved into Southeast Alaska making for a long 30 hour ride on the Alaska State Ferry. Normally the ferry travels through some amazing country, but with the low clouds and fog, we rarely saw the shore, much less the surrounding mountain peaks. I felt bad for the visitors on board, for many this is a once in a lifetime trip. There is a reason this area is so lush and green!
