Our next stop was Skagway. It has a population of about 900 people. It was an old gold rush town. They have a railroad that was built in 1897 that is the gateway to the Yukon and Klondike gold rush fields. Apparently before this railroad was built, miners would have to hike up to the fields. I can't even imagine that because some of these gulches and cliffs were so steep! Anyway, it was incredible. The scenery was some of the most beautiful I have ever seen.
