Skagway

This little town sprang into existence to accommodate the thousands of eager folks who surged north during the Klondike Gold Rush. Today, the gold is found in tourism. The Red Onion Saloon, Skagway's first bordello, thrives today as a popular tavern.


Only steps away, the Artic Brotherhood Hall boasts a fa├žade made entirely of driftwood, and the golden dome of the Golden North Hotel shimmers nearby.

                                                  

We spent the afternoon on the White Pass and Yukon Route railway, which chugs along Glacier Gorge, Dead Horse Gulch, and the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls.
