Another couple and my wife and I are taking a cruise which stops in Haines on June 4, 2008. I had thought about taking the ferry to Skagaway, renting a car and driving to Emerald Lake.
Other forums suggested taking the Haines Highway instead so that I do not have to take the ferry. We will probably leave Haines around 9:30 and want to be back by 5:00 (do not want to miss a meal).
Is Haines Junction to far to go or should we stop at Kathleen Lake? Are there any stops along the highway to see the sights and take pictures? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
