Astrocat's Chilkoot Lake boat ride, Haines Alaska

Alaska was generally very wet and cool last summer, but the week I was in Haines
I enjoyed some of the warmest sunniest weather I experienced all summer, perfect for boating. 

It was also rather unusual weather for the area as the coastal climate of Haines is normally very wet.
Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Area has a beautiful campground nestled in large grove of Sitka Pines,
most people come here to fish and resident grizzly bears strolled through the campground every day
on their way down to the river to feast on salmon. The large deep lake has many waterfalls tumbling down
out the mountains and on the far end there's a freshwater stream which flows in and contrasts with the
turquoise colored glacial water.

I thought the freshwater stream with its sandy beach looked like a lovely place to go for a swim
or set up camp, but I did neither as there were just too many bears in the area!
