The visitor center in Stewart recommended the Blue Bus in Hyder for lunch. Diana cooks, her husband and son fish. She had a smoked halibut pasta salad with home grown corn in it. It was so good, we each ordered a helping to go! I would have gladly eaten there again.
And what would a day be without a black bear?!
Fish Creek where the salmon are spawning and the bears aren’t fishing – at least when we were there for hours. A couple black bears were in the area, but the 2 known grizzlies did not appear. After the mama bear and 4 cubs in Valdez, I am not really disappointed plus we had good conversations with other travelers.
This bear was in a pond near the entrance of the viewing area and another ate berries across the river.
