We decided seeing we couldn't go on a cruise up to Alaska, we'd drive up to Stewart and then across the border into Alaska. Hyder is two minutes drive from Stewart across that border, so we could then say we'd been to Alaska.Stewart is a very out of the way place, we found the people very friendly, had a number of accommodation places, places to eat and a grocery store. On the drive up to Stewart we saw two Bears, at different spots, feeding along the side of the road, snow capped mountains, and a few Glaciers ( Bear Glacier being one of these) they were all impressive. On arriving in Stewart we went for a drive into Alaska to see Fish Creek, no bears but we did see some very old Salmon, we were there to late in the season. The board walk they have built there would certainly be a great viewing point. We then drove up to Salmon Glacier which was awsome, it is huge, and the blue glacier colour is lovely to see.
If anyone wishes to get away from crowds this is a great area to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip up there.
