I'm in the early stages of planning a road trip from Anchorage to Haines in July, 2010. I'm not a good cruiser and I thought this would be an opportunity to see some fantastic scenery and get a taste of southeastern Alaska. I understand you can take a day cruise to Juneau from Haines/Skagway and also a flightseeing tour of Glacier Bay National Park.
I was considering driving to Haines and then taking the ferry to Skagway and driving back through Whitehorse on the return trip. Does this sound like a good plan?
I would appreciate any recommendations or comments for stops along the way, lodging, etc.
