Skagway (revisited)

Yukon & White Pass Railroad
This was the second time we have been to Skagway, the first one being in 2005 when we took a cruise line. I just love Skagway, the old look is still preserved and the Yukon & White Pass Railroad made me want to come back. During the winter month this town has a population of a mere 800 people, when the workers come in the summer, the population swells to about 2.000, but when the cruise ships dock, Skagway population jump five fold to about 10,000. By 8:00 PM, all the tourists are back to their cruise ships and Skagway becomes a ghost town. This cycle is repeated day after day during the summer and tourist’s season.
