A scenic train ride into the mountains

... very clever and purchase the tickets ourselves at the station and save the ship's markup price which occurs when you go through the ship's excursions office. However, seems like the powers that be have stitched up that avenue as you can only buy the tickets at the dock and by using your ship's ID cards, but, we went anyway and it was really worth it. Our train was for Millenium passengers only.
We travelled 20 miles from the sea to the summit of ...

... we've been having here in Skagway. Its been beautiful weather if a little on the hot side and too dry for the surrounding forest. There is a current burn ban on the are because its been too dry and the risk of forest fire is too high. Still enjoying my time here in Skagway, AK. The scenery is the out of this world, the people here are awesome, and the job is just great (if a little busy).

I've been having the time of my life. Hope to update again soon.

Canada is like a massive tree forest.

This kind of area is rather boring and no good at all for photography but
there is one big advantage and that is wildlife. Animals, and especially bears

As we headed onwards along this twisty road the driver kept us awake ...

First Week of Ships

We had our first Cruise Ships come in this week. Only three total but I appreciate the easy start to get use to my job. I am responsible for 'Dock Rep'ing which is where I go to the Dock and meet the customers. There I collect their tickets and get them to sign the waivers. I also confirm the number of customers per trip. After all that I then take the customers to the Fast Ferry where they board to go to Haines. There are three trips of the ...
