All aboard to Skagway

3,000 feet below, Skagway awaits on the sea

You get a completely different view going down, than from going up, which seems philosphical, but Alaskan scenery reinforces the impressions, forever.

The country dwarfs your imagination and senses

There's so much to see

Looking down the track

The saddest photo I took, an old steam locomotive, rusting, discarded, a life no longer remembered.

An old warrior, rusting away

3,000 feet below the pass, Whitehorse beckons
