    Women's March in Haines, Alaska

    I love this, maybe even more than the huge crowds in the big cities.

      3. I know.

      This just warms my heart.  I thought we were pretty awesome showing up here in Anchorage with our almost record-breaking snowfall today, but at least we didn’t have wind like this.

    4. I lived in Haines for awhile many years ago….

    These are tough people. President Pence and his court jester Trump along with his billionaire cabinet are in for a big surprise. The people are waking up.

      5. Haines is a beautiful little town.

      We drove down there a few years ago, spent a couple days and nights, and then caught the ferry to Juneau and Sitka.  The location is breathtaking, and the people were so nice.  On the way back, we went on to Skagway and then drove that amazing White Pass and almost killed our truck overheating going up that long, long grade.  Good times…

        15. The road out of Skagway didn't even exist when I lived in Southeast.

        There used to be a bakery in Haines that made the best damn donuts I’ve ever tasted. That was 44 long years ago.

    6. I vote we exchange Trump and Pence for these folks

    Let’s see how strong the pretty boys are.

    Women’s March Saturday
    Gather at the Chilkat Center to start our march about 10 am on Saturday, Jan. 21. Everybody (not just women) are welcome! As a sister march of the national Women’s March, we agree to several guidelines including promoting a tone of respect, honesty, transparency, and accountability and staying nonpartisan. The weather might be cold so if you don’t want to march with us, you are welcomed to stay at the Chilkat Center for conversation and hot drinks.  http://www.hainesak.com/node/29438

    13. Damn, now that is grit and resolve! I will remember

    that the next time I’m at a Seattle rally. It’s really not so bad here even in winter.

    If not now, when?
