    I took this trip, plus Vancouver to Calgary by train and I would highly recommend this trip. I went in the first part of September and ended the trip in mid-October. It was a bit foggy most of the time, but very enjoyable!
    BTW, I bought a nice watch in Skagway, because you can buy jewelry and watches Duty-Free.

    EXPOZA, THIS IS THE 3RD. OF YOUR VIDEOS I'VE WATCHED, AND I MUST SAY THAT I NEVER CEASE TO BE AMAZED AT THE WONDERFUL FILMING JOB YOU DO, THEN MANAGE TO SERIOUSLY DAMAGE IT BY YOUR HORRID JOB OF PRONOUNCING THINGS CORRECTLY, AND GETTING FACTS JUST SLIGHTLY WRONG. THE SAD THING IS IT COULD SO EASILY BE AVOIDED BY TAKING A LITTLE TIME TO ASK LOCALS FOR HELP.
    1) Alaska is an American state, not a country. 2) Just for the record, in the USA, the politically correct term for Indian is now Native American, whereas in Canada it's First Nation. 3: Technically speaking, since Yukon, NW, and Nunavut are all territories, British Columbia is the province in the west, not the SW. 4) The first Alaskan town you visited was KETCH-a-can, not KETCH-a-kn. 5) Juneau is pronounced JEW-no, not ZHEW-no. 6) It should be pointed out that just 200 years ago, the glaciers at Glacier Bay were still all the way out at the bay's mouth, as they were 6000 years earlier. 7) The famous Alaskan dogsled race is the eye-DIT-uh-rod (Iditarod), not eye-DEET-uh-rod. 8) The Kenai Peninsula is pronounced KEEN-eye, not KEN-eye. 9) Chugach (Mtns.) is pronounced CHEW-gatch, not CHEW-gack. 10) Anchorage is the largest city, but not the capital; you already correctly identified Juneau as being the capital. 11) The seaplane base in Anchorage is not a river, but Lake Hood, the largest seaplane base in the world. 12) The sea eagle you filmed at the zoo is a bald eagle, the symbol of the USA. The sea eagle is another species. 13) The river in Fairbanks (Tanana) is TAN-uh-nah rather than tuh-NAH-nah. 14) The pipeline terminal is located in
    val-DEEZ (Valdez), not val-DEZ. 15) It's called the Arctic Ocean, not the Arctic Sea. 16) The place where you stopped is Coldfoot, not Coldfort, because that's where some folks got cold feet (lost their courage) and turned around in years past. 17) Once again, almost right, but not quite. Barrow is the northernmost point of inhabited USA, not all of North America, since there are a number of small settlements in the Canadian Arctic, culminating in the Canadian military base of Alert on the northern coast of Ellesmere Island, only 500 miles from the North Pole. 18) Although I'm not absolutely certain, the first moose you filmed back in Anchorage I'm almost certain was actually an elk, based on its muzzle shape and that it had antlers rather than a rack.
