Skagway, AK

Our third port was Skagway and our first activity there was the White Pass Scenic Rail. It was accessible so we all got to go on the ride!

Here we go!


Marla checking out some photo ops


Pretty scenery

Woooo! A cool trestle bridge and tunnel.

The accessible car all to ourselves ;) - Molly, Gary, Me and Grant

Hahaa! - Clark, Grant and Marla

After the train ride we split up for the rest of the day. Grant's friend from college, Tyler, met up with us and took Grant and I on a little tour. First stop, the bar for a quick beer ;)

Next stop, a little nature/speed boat ride.  Or wait, maybe we're going on a space shuttle?!

Bald Eagle - there are tons of these in Alaska! They're big too ;)

Seals - you can see the mom's white face and the baby is to the left of her.

And then ... OMG!!! A whale!!! This pic is blurry but it's for perspective of how close it came!

So cool!

Eeeeee! Who knew we'd get to do some whale watching close up?!

Us, our space suits, and a pretty waterfall!

Tyler and Grant

The speedy little boat - you sit on those chairs like a horse. It's kind of like a jet ski for 15 people!

After the boat tour we hiked out to a little lookout to have an Alaskan brew ;) Thanks for the hospitality, Tyler! We had a fun time!

Back on the ship there were pretty views all around leaving Skagway.

A glacier.

Another glacier - flowing between the mountains.

Lighthouse!

What a fun day! PS - can you believe we saw a whale so close?! Cool!
