The purpose of this blog is not "beautiful photos" nor "ancestor photos," it is to share my "personal life" photos. Because "My Heritage is happening"... Hope you enjoy!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breathe away anonymous

Skagway, Alaska ~ Lots of Fog and Snow

Laying like a blanket…

So soft at a distance.

The lone tree sure looks colorful against the fog.

Can you tell were the photo below begins?

Love the pattern and with the fog.

The fog, hiding behind the trees.

The fog is dissipating.

It is only at the very top...

Color is returning!

There is the blue sky! (…and a reflection from the window…)

Skagway, Alaska ~ Rock Painting

As we approached Skagway this is what we saw... seemed to go on and on...

...and on.

It was amazing...

…how decorated the rocks were.

I wonder who AJG is…

There were even rocks with ship line logos of those who made stops here.

Skagway, Alaska ~ Whitepass

We made it to Whitepass!

Waterfall, frozen or not?

The Flags.

Blue Ice.

I thought this was beautiful.

Looks like the tracks are covered in snow...

Time to head back down.

Skagway, Alaska ~ High in the Mountains

Yes, we are still on a train.

I love the bit of blue sky poking through as well as the plant life.

More blue, teeny bit of sky, but a stronger blue, water! The train path is visible.

Most photos taken from the train as we were moving, so can't complain if they are a bit crooked.

The higher we went, the deeper the snow, pretty natural.

Weather sure has changed.

One of my favorite shots of the train tracks.

Skagway, Alaska ~ Train Scenery

Our train, do you see the flags?

The tracks we traveled.

Twists and turns through the mountains.

Frozen River, beautiful mountains.

Coming 'round the mountain.

Melted snow.

Skagway, Alaska ~ Train Ride

White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad, Skagway.

At a stop, perfect opportunity to a photo of the train conductors.

Loved the little size of this car and the bright color.

A mini waterfall.

Where the running river meets the snow...

…and the gravel meets the snow.

Headed higher.

Skagway, Alaska ~ Docking & Train

Our ship, docking in Skagway, Alaska.

A beginning and an end...

Checking out the train tracks.

Looking ahead to see where the train is heading.

 We hop on the train and take a ride.

The train starts climbing the mountain,

and we go higher and higher.
