Tour Skagway, Alaska

Another of the ports of call for the Holland America Volendam is Skagway, Alaska. Located at the beginning of the Chilkoot Trail to the Yukon, Skagway was the destination for thousands of prospectors hoping to strike it rich with the Gold Rush of the late 1890's. Some made it, and some did not. The trail was unforegiving and many lost their lives trying to get to the Yukon.

Today, the town has been restored by the National Park Service and mostly caters to the summer cruise ships. This is a walking tour up Broadway St. You can see the Volendam docked in the rear, its that big white thingy. Click on the photo below to view the full-screen panorama's.
