Today was a layover type day. We walked the town of Haines and historic Fort Seward.
Haines is pretty small. Easily walked in a couple of hours including browsing. It has a post office, two groceries, a number of sightseeing type businesses, and lots of pricy restaurants and gift shops. Cruise ships stop here every three or four days and passengers have several hours to spend in and around town.
The historic fort is located just uphill from the cruise ship dock and many of the buildings have tourism related businesses in them.
Here is a unique museum.
Hundreds of hammers and things made from them.
tallest Fireweed we have seen. Some of it six feet tall.
Note how blossoms bloom from base up. Alaskans say when blooms reach top of stalk summer is over.
This owl is not stuffed. It is very much alive. It was tethered in the lobby of the American Bald Eagle Foundation Museum.
