Journaling


 

I really enjoyed walking through all the recreated historic buildings and watching a short movie on the gold rush period and the hardships they endured for their adventures. And I complain about my heater being broken for a day!
Skagway is also home to the White Pass Yukon Route Railroad billed truthfully as the world's most scenic railroad. I took that 3-1/2 hour ride hugging the cliffs gazing at the spreading and soaring mountains and marveled at what it took to carve that route out of the long-frozen boulders.
I met a beautiful woman originally from Baghdad who was on the cruise ship in port today and we realized how much we had in common when she confided she cries sometimes when beholding the beauty of nature, also.
It was incredible being up that high and so close to the snowy mountains.
