The Cassier Hwy is an alternate route to the Alaska Hwy, following a more westerly route. It would be hard to chose which is more beautiful. Cassier follows one valley, river and mountain range after another. The road conditions are about the same. Definitely, anyone driving both ways to Alaska should take both.
It was along the Cassier that we spotted these swans that were close enough to get a good picture. I have been intrigued with the beautiful birds. They are common in Canada and Alaska, but difficult to get a good close picture. So, I am posting two pictures of this graceful couple.
It was approaching 8:30 pm last night and we still hadn’t found just the right place to stop for the night. I spotted a sign, “Forest Service Road.” It was just a short distance down off the highway when we pulled in by a little pond, so quiet that it almost was spooky. Here is the view out of our “bedroom” window.
Tomorrow, the most southern tip of Alaska—Hyder.
