We arrived in Skagway via ferry yesterday and spent our final night in Alaska. This town’s original boom was gold, but today it is all about the cruise ships! The population of 1,057 residents rises and falls dramatically with about 10,o00 people coming into port daily! There is some really interesting history here of the Gold Rush craze in 1897.
Coming into Skagway.
Selfie on deck. Our last ferry ride for a while.
We had to unload on a floating dock!
Foxy and Blue on the ferry! We got called over the PA twice on the trip due to the car alarm going off due to the movement of the boat.
Scott bravely drove off the boat, onto the floating dock and then up another ramp to solid ground.
We visited the two local breweries, Klondike Brewing…
…and Skagway Brewing, with our campground friends from North Dakota (Pat, Greg, Nadine and Dave). Hope our paths cross again somewhere!

Getting my 200th National Park Stamp at the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Site! Yeah!!!
Off to Canada!
