White Pass & Yukon

Ira asked me to post the following. It is a PowerPoint Presentation (Slide Show) of 2.7 MB. Those with dialup Internet connections may want to pass on it. You may also need a powerpoint viewer (from Microsoft) to view the presentation.

That is on my wish list of places to visit. May not happen for 30 years but I can still dream. And hope it is there when I get there.
