The first port stop of our inner passage cruise was in Skagway, Alaska. This is a town with a lot of interesting history, but frankly, Mike and I were more interested in climbing the local mountain. With all the eating we've been doing...and were planning on continuing to do...we would need some good vigorous hikes. Dewey Mountain fit the bill.
We hiked up to several lakes and waterfalls over the course of several hours. Believe me, the trail only looked this good near the bottom!
Had to schlep the raincoat everywhere, but never ended up needing it! But it gave me a lovely wet ring around my waist each time!
Afterwards, back down in town, we looked around a little bit and found:
The most photographed building in Skagway, constructed of drift wood.
The plaque for Dead Horse Trail, part of the notorious White Pass where over 3000 horses died packing the food and equipment for gold miners.
The train's snow plow!
The painted posters for each of the cruise ships who have crew brave enough to climb the rock face. Like the skull?
