Smooth Sailing 

The ferry finally docked after a 5.5 hour cruise from Juneau to Haines, AK. What an awesome ferry system!! I found myself right at home in the open solarium relaxing with my feet up, watching all the whales, mountains and clouds roll in. Waves had the best time playing with all of her new friends and I enjoyed getting to know these raw, badass Alaskan mamas.

We’re slowly making our way to Anchorage and Homer for hiking, camping and fishing! We had a 3.5 hour drive from Haines, AK to Haines Junction, Canada which is in the Yukon Territory. The drive has been rainy, dreary and foggy but occasionally we get a quick glance of the mountains as the clouds were moving. Apparently this weather is pretty common in Southeast Alaska/Southwest Canada with it being a temperate rainforest. Regardless of the weather it’s been a gorgeous drive!

We’re finally all settled in, bellies full and ready for bed.  Excited for another adventurous day tomorrow!


A tip from Travelin’ Tribe Archive:

(1) An easy way for packing for a family while traveling are these awesome travel space saver bags. I designate one bag to each of us and it makes life easier for this mama with the bags also being clear. They are a compression bag that you don’t need a vacuum for, I highly recommend! Travel Space Saver Bags- Amazon

Until Next Time,
Stay Wanderous & Wild
