There is so much to see and do along the Alaska Highway near Skagway Alaska. Completed in 1978, the Alaska Highway spur runs 110 miles from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory Canada to Skagway, Alaska. Eye-popping scenery, wildlife, grand lakes and mountain views continue to enthrall guests as they did when poet Robert Service wrote about summer in the region:
The summer—no sweeter was ever;
The sunshiny woods all athrill;
The grayling aleap in the river,
The bighorn asleep on the hill.
The strong life that never knows harness;
The wilds where the caribou call;
The freshness, the freedom, the farness—
O God! how I’m stuck on it all.
