The train took us 3000 feet up and 20 miles into the hills and mountains surrounding Skagway.
The train was a beautiful, old-timey train that had giant picture windows. The view from both sides was amazing.
We traveled up to Canadian border and to the cusp of the Yukon and then turned around and traveled back to Skagway. It was a gorgeous view of The Final Frontier.
When we got back to Skagway we walked around town and shopped at the cool little shops.
We walked by a beat up, old truck that had a very patient, hairy passenger inside of it.
We ate at a restaurant called The Crab Shack that had no crab. They were all out. They did however have pizza and I kept up my tradition of eating pizza in every location we travel to.
Alaskan pizza was pretty good.
At the restaurant, Jeannie told a story that cracked Jo up. I just love these pictures of Jeannie talking and Jo laughing.
All in all, we had a very nice time in Alaska. It was a short two week stay, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. It's astonishingly beautiful.
I'm sure we'll return again someday for another visit.
