Before the Holiday season is over, I would like to post a photo from the Santa train. With all my years in Haines, I never have gone to Skagway for the White Pass Railroad event known as the “Santa Train. ” My wife and I figured that since we were spending the winter in Haines, why not head to Skagway with our two daughters? It was lots of fun with over 600 people taking advantage of the free event. We were in a car with mostly French-speaking Canadians from Whitehorse, so the day had an international flavor to it. Following the event, I gave a slide show at the Klondike National Historic Park Visitors Center followed by a book signing for my book, “Where Eagles Gather.” The ferry ride over to Skagway was spectacular, so I’ve also included an image of one of the mountain views we enjoyed along the way with this post. Happy New Year to all!
