Skagway Train

Our Skagway Train - 2001
Skagway Train – 2001

In August 2001 we sailed from Vancouver to Alaska on the Norwegian Wind. The ship docked in Juneau, Skagway, Haines and Ketchikan and sailed Glacier Bay. Traveling with Tom, Carol and Margaret made it great fun.

We took this spectacular train trip rom Skagway on the Alaskan coast to the border with Canada. On the way were footpaths that the prospectors took – evidence being lots of stuff left behind. A lot of packhorses died on this journey in search of the yellow metal. Those prospectors  that made it were often turned back by RCMP guns protecting our Canadian Yukon gold.
