After an extremely foggy drive through the border, we descended to the Alaska coast and into Skagway. We were one of two tents in a local RV park near the port, and were referred to as the “tent-people”.
Skagway is a small town that seems to exist mainly for the purpose of entertaining cruise ship passengers. There are dozens of jewelry stores, shrink-wrapped boxes of overpriced smoked salmon, and a general abundance of souvenir shops.
Thankfully there is also plenty of crab legs and a few breweries willing to stay open until the ships leave at 8pm.
