Skagway, Alaska

Joe’s only wish in this Klondike Gold Rush town: ride the White Pass and Yukon Route Scenic Narrow Gauge Railroad, built in 1898 and designated a Civil Engineering Monument Marvel of the World  in 1994 along with the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower and other structures. Accomplished.

We even saw the sun for a few minutes before our friends, the wind and the rain returned. 

Next stop: Juneau, the state Capitol of Alaska and its third largest city with a population of 33,000.
