Skagway, Alaska

While in Skagway we booked the three hour White Pass train ride up into Canada. The best way to book this excursion is through the ship. It's $120 per person, booked through the ship and $118 pp on your own. The difference when booking through the ship is, they bring the train right to the cruise ship and you board there rather than having to go into town. After our excursion we walked into town (about a 15 min.). 
Skagway reminds me of a little ghost town. All the buildings are older with a lot of charm. We visited the Skagway brewing company and enjoyed a sampler while there. 
As you can see in the photos below the scenery changes as the train climbs North. When we arrived into Canada we saw snow covering the ground.
