Only a short journey today, from Haines to Skagway. Both towns were trail heads for prospectors heading for the Klondike Gold Rush of 1896. From Haines the Chilkoot Trail started, from Skagway the White Pass Trail, on which a railroad was built later. We intend to take that into the Yukon tomorrow. Today we walked around town where there are still a few old buildings and a lot of cruise ship passengers.
