... another quaint place with some historical buildings and some new First Nations buildings. The caribou have long gone, but the railway starts here. It used to go from Whitehorse to the water port of Skagway. It was built in 1897/9 in 26 months. It climbs 880 meters and twists through rocky steep terrain giving us shutterbugs hundreds of scenes to shoot. The White Pass and Yukon Route transported ore,as well as passengers heading for the goldfields further up on the ...
... in dock for the day. Amazing, those ships are massive. The town is still like an old Western town with Boardwalks for footpaths etc. We took a few pictures and then it was time to head back to the bus.

Everybody was pretty whipped by the time we got to camp. We pretty much ate and were in bed by 8:30 or ...
... Our free sites topped it by far, but we bit the bullet and shelled out for our 2nd paid campsite of the trip. ;-) I should mention that mosquitoes are increasing as we get close to the Yukon, too. On our way again, continuing on the Alaska Highway and stopped at Ft. Nelson Visitor Center. The visitor centers in all the towns we've been through in Canada have been really helpful. Free Wifi and lots of printed publications on anything and everything you want to know about ...
