Whitehorse and Skagway

Visited a game preserve near Whitehorse where they rehabilitate animals that have been injured.  Enjoyed seeing woods bison, lynx, arctic fox, caribou, and muskoxen.  After lunch at the Chocolate Claim, toured the MacBride History Museum and then took a walking tour around the city.  Had dinner at the Rib and Salmon Bake and then went to Frantic Follies.  Early morning ride to meet the White Pass Railway train to Skagway.  Beautiful scenic ride, and saw parts of the Chilkoot Trail and Dead Horse Canyon.  Morning hike to Dewey Lake, lots of wildflowers and birds along the way, and a great view of Skagway.  We board the Volendam this morning and tomorrow will see Glacier Bay on our way down the Inside Passage to Vancouver.
