What a great way to celebrate our nation's independence than in small town America. Skagway has a population of 400-500 people. The cruise ships pull into port (sometimes as many as 4 at one time), and the campers pour into the campgrounds. The population swells to over 10,000 people on some days. We were invited to march in the parade. What an honor! We decorated two trucks, wore our finest red, white & blue attire, and joined the crowd.
