Haines AK, Post One

April 09, 2013  •  1 Comment

It has been Ten years Since I was in Haines so needless to say im excited to check out and get into the mountains that I remember seeing only form a distance so many years ago.   A friend and I drove the wild drive from south centeral through the Yukon and then into South East AK and Haines.  Weve been here a fair bit and it has finally snowed 'resetting' the mountains that were heavily skied.  So instead of skiing we have been travling over land to remote mountain playgrounds via snowmobile.  Here are a few shots:

 

The Yukon from the truck:
