Canada to shut off nightly access to Hyder, Alaska

February 28, 2015

The Alaska Dispatch News reports that Canada will be cutting off access to Hyder, Alaska from midnight until 8am. Personally I don’t care about the “midnight” part, at least during the winter months, but the 8am part would be hard to swallow.

Some things to understand about this story:

I’ve spent a little bit of time in both Stewart and Hyder, and it’s a beautiful, extremely rural area. Here’s a link to things I’ve written about Hyder, Alaska before, and here’s a link to me following some bears in Hyder.
