Day 23 - Whitehorse, Yukon to Haines, AK [269 miles total] Kate's back on the relay! The morning consists of a late start and a leisurely loading of the bike. I bought our Kiwi neighbors some classy moose refrigerator magnets at Dawson City - to reciprocate for the Warriors hats. So, we delivered those, and Kate and I are on our way ... adventure beckons. Kate's view for the next couple weeks: Our destination for the day is Haines, Alaska - reportedly the nicer of the two ferry ports that are a day's ride out of Whitehorse - the other being Skagway. We backtrack through Haines Junction and then cut South. It is an absolutely breathtaking ride - a highlight of the trip, and a great way to kick off Kate's rejoining the relay. We find a cool old bridge along the way and seize the photo-op. We also find a cool snow field really close to the road. I decide it's a good spot for a glacier snowball fight. Here's me falling on my face trying to get across a field and onto the snow before the camera timer goes off. It was a crazy experience having a snowball fight while being eaten alive by mosquitoes. Glaciers are slippery - who knew? We both went ass-over-teakettle several times. You ride through a crazy beautiful pass on the way down to sea level at Haines. The views were just spectacular. Road wasn't too shabby either. Ah, the happy couple... Kate's a Canadian citizen, so we had to do the whole biometrics things at the border crossing. Anything seems easy now, compared to the Monkey Butt episode. Here we are, in Alaska again - briefly. We found a beautiful lake and a spot to take a load off. I decided to test out my Gaerne Adventure boots [supposedly waterproof]. ... not exactly. We get a decent campsite right near the ferry terminal [Salmon Run Adventures] and have an awesome camp dinner purchased from the local health food store. We also stock up on provisions for the ferry, not knowing what to expect of the amenities aboard the boat. Bread, cheese, fruit... box of wine? Check! Tomorrow morning, we sail for Prince Rupert - two days on the water.
