Chilkat River

Juvenile Bald Eagle

Quite possibly my second favorite part of the trip (getting to see the Witherspoon’s topping the list). There is a short road connecting Haines with British Columbia. Running along the Chilkat River with mountains rising up on both sides, this 40ish mile stretch of pavement is exceedingly gorgeous. I have a few pictures from here I’ll wind up sharing, but today I’ll just post up this picture of a juvenile Bald Eagle. Courtney and I were able to spend a few minutes slowly creeping closer as the eagle casually preened and eyed fish in the river.
