Top Row - Shannon, Shelly & HungryHeath

Sensational Shelly & El Jefe

On this day was another port day. We visited Skagway, The Yukon & Emerald Lake. We scheduled a private tour with Elements of Alaska. Our tour guide, Nichelle, was incredibly good. She even helped me get some great videos of wildlife. My niece, Katie & I ended up taking over 200 photos.  Here are a few samples:

Although this may look like a painting, it is in fact a photo



We stopped to visit a friend of Nichelle's, who is a road side vendor. Her dog ran right up to me, wanting to play tug o' war.

 She sells drinks, snacks & a few souvenir type items. I was able to get this awesome license plate.

We stopped off for lunch at the Bistro on Bennett, where we all had a beautiful bison burger.

Next we had Nichelle drop us off at downtown Skagway so we could pick up a few more souvenirs. 

We returned to the ship, where Shelly & her niece Katie were able to pet some puppies from the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

Then it was time for dinner in the main dining room.

I have eaten a lot of Beef Stroganoff, but never have I seen pickles included. This was an odd, yet delicious twist.
