Our Drive to Skagway, Alaska

  About 9:45 this morning we left our campground with the car and drove to Skagway on Hwy 2 for approximately 65 miles.  We stopped several time to view and take pictures of the scenery.  One of the places of interest was the Yukon suspension bridge.  It was a very scenic place however the fee to walk across the bridge was $10 per person so we decided to pass on that walk.  When we arrived in Skagway we park the car and walked through Skagway along with other tourist from two Cruise Ships that were in port.  We ate lunch at a local restaurant and ate our own snacks on the way back to the campground.  Before leaving the Skagway area we drove out to Dyea an old mining town about five miles from Skagway; this was a neat drive with modern development underway. 
On our way back to our camp site we saw two black bears alongside the road.  Today’s excursion ended about 7:45 after driving 154 miles with the car.  We found our R.V. just as we left it at Carcross in the Montana Service and R.V. Park.
