Alaska Day 5: Skagway- 4th of July!

This post is about Day 5 of our Alaska trip!
On Day 5 we arrived in Skagway in the early morning
and didn't have any excursions until later in the day so we 
hung out on the ship all morning. This was a rough morning
for all of the guys in our family because they hit the 
bar/casino a little too hard the night before. 
So they relaxed in the pool/hot tub in the 
morning to 'detox' a bit. Then we ate lunch and headed
out to our excursion to go dog mushing in the mountains 
of skagway! This was also the 4th of July so there was a 4th of 
July parade on the streets of Skagway and lots of other fun
things going on. We also had a fun 4th of July themed dinner
on the ship that night!

Here's some pictures:

 Gorgeous views while traveling to go dog mushing!

 The white one was my favorite- Goliath!

 He was telling us 'let's go'!

 Loved them!

 This was a lookout post from up on the mountain where we mushed.
Amazing views.

 Loved this baby! I was trying to figure out how to get him through
the scanner to get back on the ship and go home with me!

 Love the Irises! This would make a great desktop wallpaper :)

 Like I said.. rough night = morning in the heated pool to sweat it off.

 This is an old brothel in Skagway!
The one thing I learned in Alaska was they definitely had
at least one old brothel in each town we visited. 
And there were old shacks in the mountains they called
"cribs" and you can only imagine what went on in those.

 I took full advantage of the drink of the day everyday!

 Happy 4th of July!

Day 6 of the Alaska trip coming soon! I know by now 
you are all dying to vacation here sometime soon. It is amazing!

Love this post! And I also love how you and your mom are in bright Lilly colors :) Was that pool heated? Because half the time you're in a North Face, so I can't imagine getting in a cold pool. Also, I totally would have tried to steal a puppy!
