Leaving Alaska: Kluane National Park, Haines, & Skagway | Go North Ep 18
Our 6 month Alaska, Canada, and Arctic road trip continues in this episode as we depart mainland Alaska and start heading south. We spend some time camping along the Alaska or Alcan Highway and Kluane National Park, learning about the second largest mountain in North America, Mount Logan, and enjoying the amazing fall colors. Kluane National Park stretches west of the highway here all the way to the Canadian-Alaskan border that it shares with Wrangell-St. Elias National Park that we had visited earlier in the trip in Alaska. It is a part of a larger Kluane / Wrangell–St. Elias / Glacier Bay / Tatshenshini-Alsek UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses 4 national & provincial parks and protects over 24 million acres of American and Canadian lands and the world’s largest non-polar ice fields.
We head through Haines Junction down to Haines Alaska through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. In Haines we visit the world famous Hammer Museum then hop on the Alaska Marine Highway to cross over to Skagway. This port is popular for cruising to and has many excursion activities, however our weather was poor and we only did a little shopping. Finally we drive White Pass, visit the Carcross Desert and end up in Whitehorse Yukon to reprovision.
