999 Days Around Africa: The Road Chose Me

Trips to Skagway in Alaska are anther weekend favorite of mine. Winter is a few months sorter than Whitehorse because Skagway is right on the ocean, so we often find ourselves there in early spring and late fall. It’s fantastic to be able to drive from a -20C snow white wonderland down grass and flowers.
