Skagway Alaska – offseason

4 04 2013

We took a day trip down from Whitehorse to Skagway to check it out. The drive through White Pass was "interesting" to put it mildly, but the town of Skagway was almost a ghost town on that Sunday in the off-season.

2. What do you do with a hundred tour buses in the off season?

3. The only place open on a Sunday morning.

4. The historic White Pass railway and old buildings of Skagway under the mountains that surround it.

6. Tumbleweeds anyone?

Apparently 10,000 tourists/day come through from May to September, but the 900 inhabitants weren’t really visible when we were there. I think we saw about 10-20 people the whole time we were there. Very strange.
