I was early for the ferry going from Haines to Skagway. It is a short crossing, but I was excited about the trip, since it started my drive home from Alaska down to Washington. I had visited Alaska a number of times and lived there in the 70’s for a year, but I had always either rode the ferry or flown. So, I was pretty darn early for the boat.
The ticket agent at the ferry terminal suggested I could drive up the Lutak road and enjoy the scenery for an hour or so and still be plenty early, which I did. On the way back to the terminal, I noticed an eagle sitting on a piece of driftwood along the shore. The wind was blowing hard and ruffling the feathers.
