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.

We set off from Denver on the 21st of May and shot straight up to Montana. After a few nights at my friend Allan’s house, we carried on to Canada, through Banff and Jasper. Eventually we made it to a junction just past Prince George, British Colombia for highway 37 north, which took us to Hyder, Alaska and a bunch of other stops on our push up to Fairbanks.
We put some miles behind us this week, that is for sure. We took off from the wonderful home of Rosel and Wilf at their bed and breakfast in Prince George and headed north. Again, their hospitality was incredible, and it was a pleasure for all of us to sit at their table to have breakfast with them.
