About Me

I purchased "Sadie''s House On Wheels "in late 2007 and loved traveling in a motor home so much that I went on the road full time in late 2008. I started writing this blog to help me remember all the wonder places I have been and it allows me to share those places with my family and friends. Summer of 2013 I decided to hang up the keys for a while and moved back into my stick house. After nearly two years, I am on the road again.

June1, side trip to Skagway

Skagway is about 110 miles south of Whitehorse and travels the southern Klondike highway.  We originally were going to go to Skagway and take the ferry to Haines and then to Fairbanks, but decided to do a day trip to Skagway and fore go the expense of the ferry and the crowded and expensive RV parks.

We headed out pretty early and dropped Liz and Bill off at Fraser so they could catch the White Pass train in the Skagway.  Nancy and I continued on to Skagway with the intention of doing a couple of short hikes and then meet up with Liz and Bill.

We had read that the drive to Skagway was suppose to be the most scenic of all of the drives.  So far everything has been scenic.  The drive down was pretty dreary and misty rain so we didn't stop much on the way down with the intention of stopping and taking photos on the way back when Liz and Bill were with us.  The scenery was breath taking and I had a hard time choosing which photos to upload.  Here are just a few of the scenes along the way.

                                           Emerald Lake

                                          They call this a desert but it really is just a sandy area.
                                                       Reid Falls within walking distance of Skagway

                                        Dewey Lake, just a short 1.5 mile up, and up over looking Skagway

                                  Creek which flows out of Dewey Lake

                                          Skagway Harbor

                                          Town of Skagway

                                          This was kind of neat.  The facade is small logs.

      You can barely see the train that travels from Skagway to Fraser and back.

                                            Summit Lake (this is a different Summit Lake) and it is still frozen.
