We spent our last several days in Alaska along the Southeastern Coast experiencing the towns of Haines, Juneau and Skagway. Along the way we cooked three campstove blueberry pies, got jobs working as river guides, saw three bears, spent 12 hours on a ferry and through it all dealt with the seemingly continuous southeastern rain. In all, a unique way to end our time in the 49th state.
