The Adventure Continues… Alaska: Skagway
I’ve been featuring episodes from Huell Howser’s various shows for awhile now, and I always enjoy seeing him visit parts of California that may or may not be familiar to me. But Huell explored more than just California, so I thought it would be fun to check out his short Alaska series. Most of the episodes are 30 minutes long, but he kicks off with an hour-long visit to Skagway.
Skagway doesn’t look too much different today than it did during the Klondike gold rush; but in recent years the streets have been full of cruise ship passengers instead of eager prospectors on their way to the gold fields of Canada. I’m not much for cruising, and I’m definitely not interested in shopping, but I still hope to visit Alaska someday — for the history and the beautiful scenery.
