Daviidson Glacier

You can see the icebergs, floating in the water, with the Gacier behind. The water is freshwater, being a lake formed by the melting water of the glacier.

Canoe at Davidson Glacier

The canoes drifted right up to the edge of the glacier.

Seals on rocks

We stopped at the appropriately named Seal Rock on the way back.

Three engines pulled us out of Skagway, on the White Pass and Yukon Route Railway, to a height of nearly 3,000 feet.

At the top of White Pass Summit, the train stopped, the engines swopped to the other end of the train and we returned back down the mountain.
