Day 35: Train

0 miles
$10: Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park Campground

There. That’s better. A real campsite. Pulling in at 6:30am after a restful sleep next to the road.

I’m hoping the prediction that the nearby river may exceed flood stage by one foot tomorrow is overly cautious.

I’ll keep the trailer hooked up. Just in case.

Today was about Skagway. The Key West of the north. Cruise ships on one end of the town. Senior couples in matching REI windbreakers meandering down the wooden sidewalks of Broadway.

Brothel tours.

There was a line of 15 people out front at 9:45am.

Shops that sell coffee and jewelry. Coffee. And jewelry. Like the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup no one asked for.

“Can I have a grande Americano with cream, and an Infinity necklace?”

But what I was really here for was the railroad.

Sometimes a snow blower just isn’t enough.

I took a lot of shots, and I’ll post some 360s later. For now, I’ll just leave you with this.

  1. clickity-clack…clickity-clack… Thanks for taking us on the train ride with you. It was the highlight of my 1979 trip. Can’t wait for more shots!

  2. Now THAT’S a scenic train ride. I took one once on an old train for tourists in the Netherlands. Flat fields on either side, straight tracks and slow. Really slow. I got the idea after about five minutes. Unfortunately, I had another hour and a half to go.
    Yours looks much more interesting.
