June 12 – Skagway

Today we cruise from Glacier Bay to the Alaskan town of Skagway where we walked ashore and explored the Gold Rush theme of the town.  We took a tour of the Chilkoot Trail through mountain passes to the Yukon Territory of Canada.  The scenery was fantastic and the terrain suggested perils that men ignored when the call of “gold in the Yukon” lured them on.

Finding a local yarn shop was a top priority while exploring the town of Skagway, and we had little trouble locating one.  The “knitters’ network” is spread far and wide!
