Vacation Part 4 - Skagway AK

Tuesday, July 08, 2014






























Believe it or not, that's a curling iron. They found it in the floorboards of the brothel when they fixed it up. Apparently in 1895 they had electricity in Skagway. Wow.

Skagway was one of our favorite stops. Such an amazing little town, with quite a story.

If you have the time, look up Jefferson "Soapy" Smith. What a character.

    I know about "Soapy" because before he went to Skagway he was here in Colorado and he is an interesting character I tell my students about as a side note.
