Dad took me to Alaska for the first time in August of 1995 shortly after adopting me. We made Skagway our first stop in Alaska. Dad and I hiked the Chilkoot trail which starts in Skagway,crosses Chilkoot pass,and ends at the Gold Rush town of Bennet in Canada`s Yukon Territory. After finishing the Chilkoot hike we explored Skagway for a bit,walking down to the docks where the cruise ships pull in. Dad just scanned a photo of me sitting in front of one.Those ships are really BIG,like floating cities! The photo of me in front of the cabin was taken on Chilkoot summit. It marks the Alaska--Canada border.It was hard work carrying my dogpack over the Chilkoot pass!

Dad took me to Alaska 4 more times before I crossed over Rainbow Bridge in 2000. I`ll have him post more pix of our travells on this site from time to time!

From across Rainbow Bridge,
