Skagway could be seen in the distance as the forest lining the tracks suddenly cleared. It was a foggy, misty day so the view was not as sharp as it could have been.

A river ran through the forest below, partly hidden in the mist. This was the first of three rivers we crossed on the trip.

The lead train engines made a turn and appeared to vanish into the forest. Notice the man standing on the outside platform of one rail car taking pictures with his phone.

We passed through some very dense forests on the way up to the summit and Canada. Here was just a glimpse of a river through the woods.

The weather cleared as we reached the summit (above the clouds). We passed over the third, and final, river surrounded by less dense forest.

The train moved swiftly through dense forest. A video shot of the passing forest to the sound of a train on (not welded) rails.

A river ran through a forested valley. Hills covered with trees rose on either side of the river. Those hills became high mountains, which became bare rock near their summits.

Pine trees near the valley floor appeared to be swallowed by a sea of light green.

No trip through an Alaska forest would be complete without at least one shot of a logging road. This road appeared to meet the tracks, but actually turned to parallel them.
