Day 7. We loaded the bus and "Drove to Chicken". We arrived in "Chicken" late in the morning, toured Chicken, then drove on to "Eagle" where we had a box lunch at the "Department of Interior Visitors Center". After lunch we toured Eagle, then boarded a "River Boat" and proceeded on to Dawson and checked in to the Westmark Inn.
Day 11. Today we travel by bus from "Whitehorse to Frazier" train depot. When we arrived in Frazier we boarded the "White Pass Railroad Train" for our journey to Skagway. We arrived in "Skagway" in time for a tour of the city.
Day 12. This morning we checked out of the hotel and boarded the "Volendam of the Holland American Cruise Line Fleet". The ship left the harbor at Skagway and headed to "Glacier Bay". We spent several hours in Glacier Bay then headed for Ketchikan where we docked for the night. After docking, we toured "Ketchikan".
We hope you enjoyed the photo journey as much as we did the real thing.
