Day 32: Sunday, June 16, 2013.
Henry’s Father’s Day present was he didn’t have to tow the RV anywhere! He got to relax and enjoy the day.
Blondie and I started the day with an early morning stroll through downtown Skagway. As I walked along the boardwalks gazing at the historic buildings I could imagine what it must have been like during the Gold Rush days in 1898.
This is what I saw when I stepped out of the RV this morning
Pullen RV Park Site 45, Skagway, AK
Looking down State Street toward the Harbor
Skagway Visitor’s Center is one of the most photographed buildings in Alaska
Skagway Centenial Statue. The sculptor was killed in a plane crass two days ago.
Later on, Henry and I enjoyed breakfast at the Sweet Tooth Cafe before going for a drive back up the highway to enjoy the views we couldn’t stop to look at on our way to Skagway.

We enjoyed a great Father’s Day breakfast here

Waterfalls along the Klondike Highway
We crossed over the William Moore Bridge
Welcome to Alaska
View at the Welcome Sign
We felt like the only people in the world on the Klondike Highway
Almost 80 degrees and there is still ice on the lake

Fish and Chips at the Skagway Brewing Company with a Prospector’s Ale was a great way to end the day.
We couldn’t have picked a better place to start our Alaska adventure than Skagway. We love it here.
