New Photos – Hyder, AK

At the very bottom of Alaska lies the town of Hyder.  With only 100 citizens in the summer and as little as 40 in the winter, this little town is like no other.  They have a total of 8 students in the school, no police force and the only way in and out in winter is via floatplane. It is full of bears.  In fact the guys camping next to us there hunted one successfully in about 2 hours.  Apparently our campsite was right on the bear trail, but luckily the bears did not bother us for our couple of days there.  It deems it self the “friendliest ghost town in Alaska.”  It is most certainly worth a visit if you ever make your way up highway 37 through British Colombia on your way to the Alaska mainland.
