Day 8 - Skagway / White Pass Railroad

June 1
Haines - ferry to Skagway



Heading to Skagway to board the beautifully restored White Pass Summit Railroad. We had such a beautiful 3 hour ride where the sites never ended and just kept getting more and more spectacular. We didn't find any gold - but what a great day we had!















The history of making this railroad happen in incredible. Take a look

I loved that the landscape was so diverse through the mountains. Alaska is Magical!











Isn't this great!!!!



















After a lovely day we headed into Skagway for a drink with some other folks looking for gold.

heading back to Haines

Back on board















We were treated to a very special show at night - the staff ( which is about 50% Indonesian and phillipino ) put on a traditional dance /singing show for us - great way to end yet another spectacular day
