Skagway was a great little town that we really loved. It has a population around 800. If it wasn't so small I would consider living here. The sidewalks are all wooden and I thought that was really charming.
Back in the days of the Yukon Gold Rush, they wouldn't let anyone head up into the mountains unless they could take one years worth of supplies with them.
We had lunch here and it was so good! We split a cheeseburger and I had an orange Fanta. I never knew how good orange Fanta was! lol
We managed to get a semi-private tour up into the Yukon in a SUV with 4 other people as opposed to a shuttle full of people. It was AWESOME!!!!!
This is a fault line. Apparently Alaska has tons of earthquakes every year! I never knew that before.
The state bird, the Ptarmigan. I guess it's pretty rare to see them so we were lucky. They were trying to mate, so I guess that was a bonus. hehe
The next few pics are what I like to call "how many different ways can we pose with the same sign to take a pic". LOL
On the way back down there was a bear eating on the side of the road! We stopped for about 10 minutes where I took about 100 pics of this. I will only share two with you!
We stopped off at the Red Onion Saloon to have a drink. It used to be a brothel and you can take tours but we got there too late and missed the last tour of the day.
This is the view as the ship left Skagway. I can't even describe how incredibly beautiful Alaska is. It's amazing!
