Skagway

semi-overcast 59 °F

We arrived in Skagway early this morning. This is one of my favorite spots in North America - 800 folks in the winter and 1500 folks during the cruise season. It sort of defines Alaska mentality in that most folks are an individual and like to be alone in the woods. Our highlight for the day is the White Pass and Yukon Railroad which I have ridden twice before. Before the road was constructed, the railroad was one of the main supply line to the capital of the Yukon Territory, but now it serve passengers only and only during the cruise season of mid May to mid September. A wonderful little town!
