British Columbia, Canada & Hyder, Alaska
We made it to Hyder, Alaska!
Yes, yes, you can drive from Seattle to Alaska: Hyder is a small little town on the Canadian/British Columbian border accessibly by road.
We made a stop to see a glacier that while awesome definitely showed major effects of global warming. We stopped in Stewart, BC where we wanted to go to their Toaster Museum, but it was closed. We did stop for fish and chips at Silverado Cafe for lunch before taking off down the road back to the United States.
We eased into Hyder, Alaska and took some photos of the welcome sign. Then we stopped at a bar to get Hyderized.
What is getting Hyderized you ask? Well, you will just have to wait until I get back and have time to truly explain! (Don’t worry, there is a video!) We hung out around town for a bit, went to the post office, went down the pier, tried and failed to spot bears,…and well, that’s about what there is to do in Hyder!
But it was AWESOME!
So we turned around and crossed Canadian customs to again enter British Columbia and hit the road back to a hotel in Prince George. We did see a bear along the way back!
