We have seen black bears on Porcupine Road...
Bald Eagles in the Bald Eagle Preserve and Celebrities (in the making) at Big Nugget Gold Mine.
Each tour is unique and unpredictable...special in its own way. I've met interesting people from all over the world.
I feel fortunate to go out to Porcupine Creek as often as I do because each day the scenery is different....no joke. With super long days in Alaska the flora and fauna bloom rapidly, and go to seed just as quickly as they come.
I have seen Lupine and Wild Iris all over the last week or two, and I have already seen the Fireweed start to bloom, which is the sign that summer will be coming to a close before we know it.
Haines Alaska is a beautiful wonder to behold. I love guiding these tours, it is a historical journey of the Dalton Trail and I have the privilege of reliving the adventure of the Porcupine Creek Gold Rush of 1898, on every tour. It is amazing to think of the determination and dedication the pioneers of this wild frontier possessed, giving us the luxuries we have today.
That's all for now folks....Happy Forth of July! Celebrate our freedom to follow the American Dream!
