“Absolute Beauty!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

This place called Haines in Alaska has got to be one of the most beautiful places on this earth. Back in 2003 when our cruise ship was about to make port in Ushuaia Argentina the cruise director of 25 years said this place is the 2nd most beautiful place in the world that he had visited. When asked what was the 1st most beautiful place, he responded, Haines, Alaska. We are so fortunate to have our son and family located in Haines. You just have to visit Haines!

“Magnificent Scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2011

We don't know what the drive between Haines Alaska and Haines Junction, Yukon Territory looks like at other times of the year, but on one very special day in early June, we purposely took an entire day to drive the mere 150 miles. It was worth the time!

There were gorgeous views, misty mountain passes, snow (but not a lot), birds and more.

“the REAL art gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2011

If you are in Haines, Alaska, don't miss the "Seawolf Gallery". It's a REAL art gallery!
You'll be amazed at this little gallery / workshop. Pieces of arts carved by the owner, I didn't even ask his name, a very nice, well-educated gentleman. I happened walked into this shop after visiting the "Alaska Indian Arts" centre up the hill across where the cruise stops, and it shook me up. It locates in the open field just in front of the "Alaska Indian Arts" centre, next to the houses with totem poles. You won't miss it. Write more about it if you've been there and recommend it to your friends.
