Tammi from TJ Photography has offered to share her spectacular scenic shots with the friends of Hidden Valley Bed & Breakfast. I hope you enjoy the Alaska & Yukon Territory imagery.
Interesting fact – White Pass & Yukon Route became a fully integrated transportation company; operating docks, trains, stage coaches, sleighs, buses, paddlewheelers, trucks, ships, airplanes, hotels and pipelines. It provided the essential infrastructure servicing the freight and passenger requirements of Yukon’s population and mining industry. WP&YR proved to be a successful transportation innovator and pioneered the inter-modal (ship-train-truck) movement of containers.
The WP&YR suspended operations in 1982 when Yukon’s mining industry collapsed due to low mineral prices. The railway was reopened in 1988 as a seasonal tourism operation and served 37,000 passengers. Today, the WP&YR is Alaska’s most popular shore excursion carrying approximately 365,000 passengers in 2010 during the May to September tourism season operating on the first 67.5 miles (Skagway, Alaska to Carcross, Y.T.) of the original 110 mile line.

These are the stunning Reid Falls in Skagway, Alaska.
This is Bennett Lake near Carcross, Yukon.
This is a Glacier fed Lake near the White Pass Summit. Picture perfect.
Alaska and the Yukon are beautiful in any season.
