We ate lunch at a replica mining camp just outside of Skagway complete with all the amenities, saloon, brothel, fancy goods store, barber tent, sleep tents, wagons....and the best salmon I've ever had....all cooked over an open fire. our bus driver/guide was a former marine who lived there with his family all year round. When they wanted to buy fancier clothes or go the the movies, it was a 100 mile drive to Whitehorse. If it wasn't in the household budget, you didn't go that month. In the winter, they have sustained winds of 40-50 miles per hour almost every day.
