I can't even begin to tell you of our adventure up the White Trail Pass by train. I've been told it was amazing, but to actually see it... it is incredible! Even with all the pictures we took I don't think anything could capture the essence of the beauty we saw.
Once we got to Fraser, BC, we had to get out for border crossing security. There is NOTHING in Fraser except the border guards and their housing. However, they are across from a beautiful view, a lake with snowy cap mountains.
The scenes along the way were breathtaking! I just couldn't imagine that they were real. I heard that Alaska and the Yukon were beautiful but until you actually go, you have not idea. During our trip up the White Travel Pass, the scenery was so incredible. Layla stayed outside at the back of the train because we were in the last car. Lucky for us. We were able to capture some incredible pictures, which I'll post by itself because the scenery deserves its' own post.

The train station is the bathroom for the many travelers who get off the bus or who are driving through. Once we got off the train and had our bathroom break, took a few pictures, we got on our original bus from Skagway. We had a really awesome guide. He always tried to 'beat' the big tour buses so we could enjoy our stops along the way to our dogsled tour in the Yukon.
If you can get to the Yukon, please do it. It is worth the time, travel and cost. Be careful of the guide you choose. Our tour was 8 hours which included the train, the bus before and after the train, all the pit stops along the way and the dog sled ride, which was incredible! It even included a delicious BBQ lunch. We ate ours in the covered wagon while others ate inside the restaurant area. They even had little shops and animals to pat.
Hope you enjoy my little post here and for your patience while waiting for me to post all my various parts of our amazing trip to Alaska and Yukon.
