Nice spacious room, looks new everywhere. My room #44 didn't have a smoke detector battery, but excellent wifi. My buddys room 45 had the opposite. Close proximity to The Skagway Brewing Company though, which has its own advantages!

... them and milk the roe ,but if they spawn naturally, they die afterwards anyway. The sealions and otters feasted on them at high tides but we always missed the rumoured Mama Bear and 3 cubs. Driving towards Anchorage, the glaciers and mountains around us are truly awesome..R&R today in a campground means Joyce gets to spend the avo in the laundry, oh joy!Hope all is well with you ...
The village of Atlin was certainly picturesque but had little else to offer so it was off to Skagway, Alaska for 2 nights on the next leg of the journey.
The road was good and the skies a mix of sun and cloud on the way to the U.S. border. We got there in about 4 hours after stopping at Jake's Corners to have one of their renowned cinnamon buns.
When asked at U.S.A. customs if we had any fruit ...
