At the start of the Chilkoot Trail

Martha and I are on our last full day in Alaska / Yukon. We spend a wonderful evening and morning with Kathy and Fred at Chilkoot Trail Outpost. In the Ghost Town of Dyea, just around the point from Skagway Alaska, this special place is comprised of beautiful log cabins, kitchen/gazebo and fire pit.
Thanks Kathy for the lesson on Smore making 101 – Sourdough style.
The Chilkoot Trail is the pathway to the gold fields of the Klondike and many an unfinished journey was begun right here by thousands of folks who ventured to seek their fortune.
Check out Parks Canada’s site for more info on the Chilkoot Trail.
If you come, be sure to plan a ride on the White Pass Railroad. Unfortunately on our visit, the railway was a few days from the first run of the season. If you stay here with Kathy and Fred, they can write you a ticket for the train as they are agents for this memorable experience.
Martha and I have met many delightful people and enjoyed our short visit to the north. Can’t wait to come back.
