This was just a small part of the map they gave us with details of the inland passage to Alaska. I know that I still have trouble making sense of the island, peninsulas, canals, etc in the Puget Sound region.
Sometimes I tried to figure out where we were but quickly I gave up. I figured they knew where they were going and the stops were listed on the bulletin board at the Pursers. I would just trust in them and watch the scenery.
Skagway was the most north we went. Our leaders said Skagway would be deserted and it was. It's been co-opted by the cruise ships and the cruise ships ended a month before we arrived. The cruise ship lines own a lot of the jewelry and other shops and they were all closed up. Weird. I think Skagway is legit town; was the gateway to the Klondyke.
