Yea, OK, I lied. This is the last Alaska photo I’ll be showing for a while. I was able to submit more than one photo to the White Pass & Yukon Route contest, so I went with this one too. I hope I win something! If not, it’s always fun to participate. 🙂
All aboard! This is just a glimpse of the beautiful scenery from the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad on our stop in Skagway, Alaska. We rode a shuttle bus up to the summit which borders Canada and then rode the train back to town. This railroad passage was built during the Klondike Gold Rush and is an International Civil Engineering Landmark. Amazing stuff when you learn about all the people and horses that gave their lives to build it and how others survived the winters. If you’d like to read more about it, check out the WP&YR website.
This is my last stop in Alaska for a bit. I am thinking of submitting this photo for a contest they are having, what do you think?
