The word lovely is a strange adjective to couple with the word Skagway, but today was a lovely day here - sunny, blue skies and 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Rachel and I took advantage of the situation and rode the scenic White Pass and Yukon Railroad up to the White Pass Summit. Leaving from the train depot in town near the docks, the 20 mile ride passes over several bridges and waterfalls and through two tunnels.
In Canada, at the summit, the engines switch positions from the front of the train to the back and the seat backs flip over so that we face in the opposite direction. The scenery was absolutely spectacular on the trip up and back again.
Dave and Carolyn started traveling after they retired. In 2006 they went to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In 2007 they traveled across the US and saw more than 20 National and State Parks and 38 states. This year they traveled through Canada to Alaska. This trip was absolutely amazing - Alaska is a must see!
In the winter, we head south to Florida, usually for three months. ... full info
