Day 63: Chilkoot Lake State Park, Haines, AK

Mostly sunny, cool and serene.

Before breakfast, and after only one shared cup of coffee, we went back to the river where we saw the bears yesterday.

We saw three more brown bears. See “A Bear Story,” a separate blog.

We walked around Fort Seward in Haines. There are a lot of buildings remaining from the building of the fort in 1902. The officers’ homes look different than most homes in Alaska, and that is on purpose. They wanted the Colonial Revival style. Fort Seward is no longer in service. I think the officers homes are residences now.

We drove almost to the end of the peninsula to Chilkat State Park and spent the night along the road there.
