Looking back at Haines from an altitude of about 2,000 feet, with the wide Chilkat River to the left and Taiya Inlet stretching up towards Skagway to the right.
The usual mode of travel between Skagway and Haines is by ferry, either a State car ferry or private passenger ferry. Haines is only 15 miles from Skagway by air, but it's 359
miles by road, through Whitehorse, Yukon!
