Day 30 – Haines to Skagway

Today was an early rise. We got up at 5AM and within 15 minutes Carl and I had made coffee, packed up the truck and packed the tent away. There is some amazing ease to the iKamper roof top tent.

We arrived at the ferry terminal as suggested at 5:30 AM and checked in and received our boarding passes. We waited until about 6:30 AM before the loading started. Once on board, we awaited for departure, and after about 75 minutes, we got underway. The view of the Fjords around the area is breathtaking. We arrived in Skagway about 8:30 and proceeded to park and have a look around. Th visitor’s center was first and then I found an RV park we could camp at.

The rest of the day was napping, phone calls home, showering, and then a tour of the town and its establishments. We found one great beer and some really good bears and a restaurant that makes the best pizza rolls. Skagway is a cruise ship tourist town and is really nice and clean and interesting. If we decide to lave tomorrow, we will be saying good bye to Alaska on this trip. We will see how it goes.

Had to laugh. The saloon next door is Happy Endings saloon.

I am trying to get photos updated, but Verizon is not really capable of adequate connectivity up here.
