Kim & Sarah wanted to visit the Jewell Gardens, so they went on the shorter White Pass Rail excursion while I went on the excursion that included a hike through the rainforest to the Denver Glacier. Their tour bus left a bit earlier than mine and made several stops along the Klondike Highway, while mine only stopped just long enough at the border to check passports. We were on the same train coming back (until I got off at the Denver Valley trailhead) but we were in separate cars.

First stop: Goat Lake Hydroelectric Project

Next stop: The 'Welcome to Alaska' sign at the Canada/US border

The trip back to Skagway on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad.
