Skagway is the best preserved gold-rush town in the US. With 852 residents and 900,000 visitors per year it's kind of hard to tell! We chose not to do any excursions here and didn't spend too much time in the crowded shops.
It's hard to believe but 35 years ago my grandmother took my sister and me to Alaska on a 13 day tour. It was our first exposure to the wild west. I kept trying to remember things from that trip and compare them to now but a lot has changed. We did cruise Glacier Bay from Skagway to Vancouver. Here's the evidence I was here before (in what seems like another life.) I've always appreciated her generosity in so many way.
