This photo was taken in Skagway, Alaska. My boyfriend Eric and I took the Whitepass Railroad up into the mountains into British Columbia, Canada along the old Yukon Gold Rush route. It was amazing!
Purchased from Russia in 1867, Alaska became the 49th U.S. state in January, 1959. By area, it is the largest state, but also one of the least populated. It is also one of the wealthiest and most racially diverse states. It contains some of the most beautiful and breathtaking scenery on the continent.
