What a fantastic day trip. If you make the trip to Alaska, the Whitehorse-Skagway Bus/Train trip is a must do! We were picked up (at our campground) about 8:40 and back at the campground at 6:00.

The train portion of the trip is about 27 miles long on a narrow gauge railway and went from Fraser, BC to Skagway, AK. Then a 2 hour layover in Skagway and a bus trip back to Whitehorse. The pictures we've posted don't do this trip any justice. Thanks Carrie for the suggestion.

Tomorrow is another down day. Need to do some laundry.
