Earl and Rhonda Alaska 2018 travel blog

We arrived at Stewart for two nights. The drive was very foggy leaving Dease Lake but cleared up about half way to Stewart and was a very nice drive. About 35 miles from Stewart we arrived at Meziadin Junction on a lake by that name. The road from there to Stewart cuts through a narrow cut through the mountains and then on the Stewart. In the cut there are glaciers and areas where you can see where avalanches are common. In fact, there are signs warning of avalanches with a small sign hanging below that says "Year Round". Right next to Stewart is the US border and a small town named Hyder. In Hyder there is an elevated walkway with sideboards along a salmon stream where bears come to feed on the salmon. Sorry to say we did not see any bears feeding while we were there. Apparently the food has been plentiful there and the bears weren’t feeding on the salmon although many were coming upstream to spawn. When I was there 6 years ago I saw a huge male grizzly feeding on salmon with a golden eagle getting leftovers.
