We're back in Alaska this morning. In fact, we just crossed the border and decided a sign picture was in order. At this point I can't believe I drove that rig all this way. By now I'm feeling pretty smug about navigating the highways and byways. That lasted until we started down the canyon you see underneath the sign.
Oh my goodness ... only the words that came out of my mouth sounded a little different. Dan warned me about this one, but little did I know just how steep ... and long ... it was going to be.
The Corringtons (who Patty and Dan worked for) own several buildings, including one with a small museum in the back. Back in the day, Mr. Corrington began trade with the natives and has accumulated some amazing things, including trade beads. If you ever get to town, be sure and check it out. You can even see the dog sled he used when he raced the Iditarod.
Yes at the very end of Skagway there is a ship docked at the wharf. That's how close the town is to the ocean.
Can you just imagine what those gold miners would have thought ... seeing all this at the same point where they disembarked from their Seattle ship? It makes you wonder what it will look like in another hundred years?
Kind of a short blog this morning, as I'm taking Cooper in to the vet to have his teeth cleaned. It's scary, probably more for me than him. Please keep your fingers crossed for him!!
