Leave rig in Haines

OOh, thanks. I was thinking of leaving the trailer. Duh, could leave whole rig. I'll have to check if there is a way to get the dog on the ferry. Maybe in a crate? I hate to have to leave her at home for that long.

We went to Juno on the Fjord Express, www.alaskafjordlines.com/ and there was a couple with a dog in a dog crate on our trip. There is also the "Fast Ferry", http://chilkatcruises.com/

Larry and Teddy,
Thank you for clearing up my confusion about the location of Chilkoot Lake. I was following your trip photos using my copy of the 2001 Milepost and got off track at Haines because the Milepost shows the Haines Highway ending at the ferry landing, when in fact it continues along Lutak Inlet for ten more miles. Following your lead, I looked it up in my DeLorme Alaska Atlas & Gazetteer and found the road to Chilkoot Lake and a state campground. The Alaska State Parks Internet site lists the campground as having 32 sites for small RV, toilets, picnic tables, and water. It happens to be one of the few Alaska State Parks facilities that went without a volunteer host this year and I was wondering why. Do you have any impressions of that campground or remember if there were many campers?
Craig Nold
Craig,

The entrance to the campground is right there at the roads end by the lake, however we didn't drive into the campground.

Larry , wonder if you have any advice for those planning such a trip? Anything you would do differently , objects taken and not used or wish you had taken. Places well worth it and some you could have passed up? Planning the trip next year of about the same length of time and distance.:reyes
:chin Hmmm...what would we do different? Well...nothing comes to mind as we had such a great time everywhere we went. I do think that touring Alaska counterclockwise (i.e. Fairbanks first) as we did is the way to do it. That way everything just keeps getting better. We thought that Fairbanks was great when we were there but if we had visited it last we might have been disappointed. We are already talking about going back next year.

Larry

Alaska counterclockwise

Larry,

I believe that your suggestion to start at Fairbanks and do Alaska in a counterclockwise fashion is very good advise. I felt the same way about Yellowstone and Jasper. Wish that I had seen them on the way to Alaska or on a separate trip altogether. It's like once you have seen Denali, it is the mountain by which all others are measured.

Watch for a green Tacoma pulling a Casita on your trip next year.
