Cruising Alaska: Day 4 Skagway, Alaska

Over night we sailed to Skagway. Talk about a pretty little town. All the mountains everywhere is gorgeous!

We decided to stay on the ship until lunch and then get off and do our things.
We took a train ride up into the White Pass for most of the day. That was beautiful. Pictures are in the next post.
After the train ride, we walked around the little town. It is a cute older looking town. It even has the wooden boardwalk like sidewalks.
On the way back to the boat, we found a sign that said Skagway on it...like the only one that we could find. But the funny part was that it was for a RV camping area. The whole mountain side next to where the ship dock, they had all these painting of the ships that have docked there through the years. We couldn't find the Rhapsody of the Seas, but we know that it was on there somewhere.
However, we did find one called Jason. So of course we had to take a picture.
When we got back to our room, we found a monkey hanging there. Too cute!
After dinner, and before the show we were going to, I decided that I wanted to go up onto deck to watch us sail out. There was a different ship there with us and they sailed out first. I thought that it was really pretty sailing out there.
After watching us sail out, we went to the show. I was excited for it because it was all country. But I think that they ruined some songs for me. I think that some songs just need to be left alone.
After the show, we decided to go back up on deck to watch the sunset. We were the only ones up there because it was freezing, but it was so pretty! The colors were gorgeous...this picture doesn't do it justice. After the sunset, we decided to call it a night because it had been a long day.

I love that photo of the ship with the mountains in the background. It makes the ship look HUGE!!! Alaska looks so gorgeous! I can't wait to go there someday.
