Skagway

All except the first picture were taken after we got to Skagway.  We took a train ride there and while it was enjoyable I much prefer the car ride we took on the last trip.  You can see so much more from the car and besides that the train ride was kind of rough with all the swaying back and forth.  It was hard to take good pictures because of all the movement.  I stayed out on one of the platforms at the end of each passenger car most of the time
 One last shot as we're leaving Juneau. :)

 We took a train ride to White Horse Pass in Skagway.


 A shot along the way....

 This is coming into Skagway.  Sorry that it's out of order but I'm too lazy to fix it.:)



 A shot of a stream rushing off the mountain.

 Here we go into a tunnel.

 This is an old bridge that is not used any more.

 Across the bridge we go...

We're now at the US/Canadian border.

I love trains, Neal... Think I would love the train ride. You got some great pictures. As much as I want to take pictures, I think (if we take this trip) that I just want to relax and enjoy it.

Beautiful pictures.

I think you got some great pictures of and from the train. I especially like those photos of the train crossing bridges and entering tunnels. The scenery is gorgeous.

I love the little stream in the mountains. Those are pictures of the train YOU are on?? It must be very long, and heaven's to betsy, those bridges, tunnels, and passes, giving me my fear of heights just looking at them!!! They are great pictures, but I'm very glad I'm planted on the couch right now!

I don't think I would have ever wanted to go across that one bridge!
