Although we had a knowledgeable and personable tour guide, the tour was quite short. Both legislative chambers are closed while they are being renovated. Afterwards we walked a few more blocks and up an even steeper hill to St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church. This is the oldest Russian Orthodox church in continuous use in the United States. Unfortunately, we are now zero for two on Russian churches. This church was closed just like the one in Sitka. And, in Juneau there were four ships in port !
We bummed around town, browsing the tourist and jewelry shops
We caught the shuttle back to our motel, picked up our luggage, and went to the airport. We enjoyed our last flight on a small plane back to Skagway.
We breathed a great sigh of relief. All of the logistics and transportation issues of the last few days worked flawlessly. And, it is still drizzling in Skagway. It felt good to get back to our motorhome for a light dinner.
It is with some sadness that we write today's blog. We have had such a great time and countless adventures in the Yukon and Alaska. Tomorrow, we leave Alaska for the 1700 mile drive to Seattle via the Cassiar and Yellowhead Highway through British Columbia.
