Haines, Alaska & a bear fishing
The 146 mile Haines Highway connects Haines, Alaska with Haines Junction in the Yukon on the Alaska Highway. Haines Highway is usually snow-free by May. The Haines Highway is known for its grand views of glaciated mountains and the variety of scenery. In 2004, the two RV Gypsies cruised Alaska and went to the Chikat Bald Eagle Preserve in Haines (perhaps a separate area for the 2004 Alaska trip will be put on this website at a later date - check the TOC button above to find out). On this trip, the two RV Gypsies visited Haines for the sole purpose of seeing bears fish - mission accomplished.

importantYou can drive into Haines Alaska at any time because the U.S. customs is open 24 hours a day as of 2007. But you cannot cross into Canada from Haines between 11p.m. and 7 a.m. Alaska time because Canada customs is only open 8 a.m. to midnight Pacific time.
 
Haines Hitch-Up R.V. Park was nicely decorated around the office area. There was a car/RV wash directly across the street. No washing vehicles IN the campground. No clotheslines or clothes hanging outside. Do not use patio mats or door mats. Office personnel were very friendly and helpful and even directed the two RV Gypsies to the best bear viewing area. The park had cable TV with lots of channels except ABC, but the cable was only available at extra cost. Wi-Fi was also available at extra cost. The campground had a total of 92 sites and level, grassy spaces. 50 amp was available.

The two RV Gypsies drove their toad to the river to see the bears.

Lee and Karen Duquette were in Haines in 2004 during an Alaska cruise, but that was before they became two RV Gypsies. Maybe someday, just maybe, those photos will be posted on this website with a link under the TOC button above.
