You can find the 1st part of the article here

We start driving to Haines.

From Seward, it is here (by bird)

Seward - Haines par oiseau
Seward – Haines par oiseau

But for us , wingless, it is more like this :

Seward - Haines par la route
Seward – Haines par la route

Fortunately the road is amazing and the sun is back. From Tok that we discover by day, the road to Haines Junction is the same but the colors have changed and fall is here.

Haines

We pass the boarder, back to Canada and after another boarder, we are again in Alaska, by night and with the rain… Yeah!

It does not matter! In the morning, after the visitor center, we go to the river, where salmons swim to let their eggs at the place where they are born. Cleaver. Well, on their journey, they have to avoid certain difficulties, such as :

These little grizzlys seem used to human presence (but we won’t go to close… even if some of us may have been very close):

After 2 days in Haines, we decide to leave Alaska for good and we start for real our way down to the south. Next stop: Vancouver, 2.500 km from here !

      Hi. It was in september. I don’t think you will need them if you’re staying on the main roads. But you may double check 😉
