Comment on this story
  1. Nearing the spectacular Marjorie Glacier in Glacier Bay, one of 16 active tidewater glaciers in the bay.
  2. One of several paintings of the women who serviced customers in the heyday of Skagway's famous Red Onion Saloon, which housed one of the finest bordellos in town.
  3. Everywhere you go in Alaska, the landscape is icy and white.
  4. Having a pint or two at the infamous Red Dog Saloon in Juneau, where visitors are often treated to fine entertainment, is a must.
