This day turned out to be a pleasant surprise for us. Our group had originally booked the White Pass and Yukon train tour that goes up along the pass from Skagway into the Yukon territory. I had done that train ride during my previous visit to Skagway in 2008.
However there was a landslide the day before and the tracks were closed for repair. That gave us the opportunity to take the bus ride over the pass on the other side of the ravine. This gave me the opportunity to see the area from a whole new perspective, plus we got to stop at the rope bridge and learn a little more about Canada during the gold rush days. We also were treated to a grilled salmon feast at the gold rushed themed Liarsville Cookhouse, named after the journalists who used to live and work there.
After our tour, we also had time to explore the town of Skagway on our own and took pictures of some of the famous landmarks there.
