We're off to Hyder, AK
on the Ferry today from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy

July 12, 2010




Today we were up by 4:30 am to be at the Ferry by 5:30. The ride is around 15 hours. We purchased a cabin along with the regular ticket, so we could take naps as necessary. Bud and Karen split a room with us. The room had two twin beds and a television. We did not have any internet service.

It's too early for a flash
