Skagway was born when the cry of "Gold!" went up in the Klondike in 1898. This spot at the head of the Lynn Canal was as close as you could get by ship, so for a couple of years, the entire world turned its attention to Skagway. Today, Skagway is tiny—4 blocks wide, about 25 blocks long—but huge on history: Downtown is restored to its turn-of-the-century glory, and the White Pass & Yukon Route railway still heads north daily between early May and late September, climbing out of the narrow box canyon that holds the city, into the Canadian wilds beyond.—Edward Readicker-Henderson
