Skagway


View Deirdre & Jason do the cool north on young_murphy's travel map.

Had two days in Skagway now. Zip-lining yesterday through the rain forest over waterfalls. Best ever. flips and spins and lots of fun.
Town of about a thousand expanded to over 10000 with 4 ships in port. after 8pm streets are empty.
Rafted down a glacier fed river today, saw over a dozen bald eagles but no bears.
Up to 800 photos now but too hard to select which ones to upload (plus slow internet) so will have to do the slide night when we get back Spud!
Doesn't get dark till 11pm, so getting very tired with lack of sleep.
Leave the coast tomorrow and head into the interior and gold country. Went by Parkers place in Haines today (for all you Gold Rush fans).
