Exploring the Haines Highway

Km 91.2: Three Guardsmen Lake. The Chilkat Pass area that you are now in is very popular with birdwatchers, as over 82 species of birds have been recorded here, including gyrfalcons, snow buntings, 3 species of ptarmigan, red-throated loons, wandering tattlers and Smith's longspur. This photo shows the lake and highway from an old mining road that climbs to a glacial cirque beside the Three Guardsmen.
