With just a couple days left in Alaska we are experiencing mixed emotions. Excited for our new adventure but sad to leave family and the beauty of Juneau. We have been soaking as much of it in as possible. Today we went out on dad Roth's new tug boat and were blessed with gorgeous weather!

We went to Skagway this weekend to visit our friend Brenna who is working there for the summer. Skagway is a small town of about 300 people north of Juneau (6hr ferry ride). Skagway is a historical town centered around the gold rush in the 1890's. They have kept the town preserved of its history and town character primarily for a tourist attraction. The first crew ship doesn't come in until this weekend so it was nice to visit Brenna on a weekend before thousands of tourists showed up.
