|First view as ship was coming into Skagway, Alaska|
The streets of Skagway...
Quilt shop we visited...
Skagway was my favorite little town that we visited in Alaska. Notice the wood planked sidewalks. It was quaint, quiet and cute. We would have explored it further but we had an excursion scheduled on the White Pass Route Railway. This is the one that they had cancelled in the morning due to high winds and excessive snow up the mountain. Any way, this next picture is our ship, The Miracle, by the pier and the train is also there (on the left - but you may not see it unless you make the picture larger - it would be on the far left).
Train crossing trestle...
and into mountain...
Next: Glacial Bay
Just had a catch up on your last post ...hope OH is OK ...fingers crossed for the results.ReplyDelete
Fantastic shots ...that tressle bridge looks scarey....not sure I would have coped with crossing that. The ship you were on looks huge.xx
Angie, apparently the ship (Miracle) was a small one compared to some, but it was definitely big enough for me. As for the tressle bridge - by the time the train reached it, there wasn't much of a choice involved.Delete
And at this point in the trip, I was using my philosophy that has always helped me, 'whatever is, is.. and I can handle it'.
Wow! It's a very special town, it seems. I'll try to make it there at least once in this incarnation. :-)ReplyDelete
"Add it to your 'bucket list"... do you have a bucket list, DJan?Delete
You had a lot of snow! We've always gone a little later in the season and have seen snow only in the distance. Sounds like you had a great trip.ReplyDelete
Yes, there was a lot of snow still on the mountains... and being the first cruise of the season, there were a few obstacles. But the good thing is that we didn't have any other shiploads of passengers in the little towns. We had them all to ourselves.Delete
That is awe-inspiring scenery and the town does look cute. Such a different world.....ReplyDelete
It really was a 'different world'... and especially for a city girl born and raised in the south.Delete
