Small Boat Harbor, Skagway, Alaska

Some of the towns and cities along the West Coast of Alaska are cut off from land access to the rest of the state. Skagway has roads and a rail line into the interior of the state. But it is also right on the coast and relies heavily on ship-based transportation. These small boat docks are an important part of the costal communities in Alaska and in some cases provide the only transportation to and from distant settlements.
