Main Street, Hyder, Alaska
We didn't see any people in Hyder but I'm sure there were some people there.
I'm not sure about the ghosts, but the horse was sure friendly.

Last weekend I posted pictures from our visit to Dawson City and after we left there we headed south and back to Whitehorse. After a nice two days there we set off for Watson Lake and the Cassiar Highway shown in red on the map above.
We saw several bears along the road. This young black bear was with it's mother but stopped to take one last look at us. We also saw a couple of grizzly bears.
We were on our way to visit Stewart, British Columbia and Hyder, Alaska on our way back south to the lower 48.

Continuing the Alaska road trip, after Denali, we headed for Fairbanks where we spent one night. It was cloudy and rainy and I guess that is why I didn't take any pictures there. We had wanted to drive up the Dalton highway to Coldfoot, just north of the Arctic Circle. Dalton highway is not paved and about thirty miles into the 260 mile trip it started to pour down rain. Then lightening struck the road about 20 feet in front of us so we found a wide spot and pulled over to discuss our options. As soon as we stopped, thousands of tiny mosquitoes blackened our windshield and then started coming in through the dash air vents. We turned around and hightailed it out of there. I guess you could say we got cold feet.

So we made our way to Taylor Highway and headed for Chicken, Alaska. This road was not paved either but we found this place to spend the night and the next day was bright and sunny.
This is the town of Chicken. We learned that the founders wanted to name the place after the many ptarmigan that they found in the area but they didn't know how to spell it so they just named the town Chicken. We camped here over night.

This owlet still has it's baby fluff but was not in a spot where I could get a good shot.
I think they are Great Horned Owls.
