I am lucky enough to have visited Haines, AK a few times since moving to Alaska. My last visit was to catch the Ferry to Skagway in order to hike the Chilkoot trail but it coincided with the SE AK State Fair and I have to say, this is the most grass-roots, fantastical state fair in the land. I am excited and a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of scootin’ down there to peddle my wares but it is going to be an awesome adventure. Haines is such a lovely place and this fair brings folks from all around (I know I’ll see some fellow Fairbanksans down there). Aaahhh! I can almost smell the seaweed, camp smoke and local beer!
