Yukon Ho! (and Skagway too)

Our second stop was Skagway.  The boys played some disc golf while we girls slept in and ate a big breakfast, and did a little shopping.  Then we piled into a rental car and headed to the Yukon!

This is where the disc golf course was.  This is also where the mosquitos lived.

This is actually not the proper disc golf technique.

The “baskets” were actually beer kegs.  So, disc golf was easier, cause you only had to hit the keg rather than land in the basket, but it also had the added danger component of bear maulings.

So, once the boys finished that we headed off for:

Where we encountered

this guy.  About 20′ or 30′ from us.

We were so excited we decided to celebrate with some world famous icecream!  I got Rollo.  Yum.

Tim got pistachio. He seemed to enjoy it.

Then we headed off to a soup and sandwich restaurant that was recommended to us.

From there we headed off to Emerald Lake.

and brought a friend back with us.

Then we headed happily back to the US of A.  These mountains reminded me of zebras.

We had to make a few stops on the way
