NOTE: I would like  to share with  you  through  these few words, photographs and hyperlinked websites, a 3 Dimensional  experience as though you were  actually there with  us. Click on any photograph and it should enlarge to a  different size ….. at least half screen or size full screen. It will be clearer in detail than the photo on the post. It will be as if you were  really there looking at the actual  scene. You are an arm chair traveller with us.

If you would also like  to see the post in a larger or smaller size, I suggest you follow this procedure: If you right-handed, with your left hand, press  down continuously  on the Control Function Key  with your left hand and with your right hand, move  the   little  cursor wheel either forwards or backwards to make the text in the post larger or smaller.

Overview
A trip to Skagway just isn’t complete without experiencing an authentic Alaskan salmon bake. During this 1.5-hour outing, dine on delicious Alaskan fare including wild Alaskan salmon and many more tasty treats. Enjoy your meal in the village of Liarsville, a re-created Gold Rush-era mining camp where after your all-you-can-eat buffet, you will have free time to explore the area, visit the Gold Rush-era exhibitions and historical buildings, and chat with the 19th-century characters.
What to Expect

After pickup from your Skagway hotel, head to the historical, Gold Rush-era Liarsville Camp, where you will be greeted with a mouthwatering assortment of warm and cold Alaskan dishes, served alfresco in the forest. Feast on Alaskan-caught wild salmon grilled over an open alder-wood fire, and enjoy Chilkoot chicken, Panner’s pasta, Prospector Pete’s reindeer beans, Liarsville rice medley, Sluice Box slaw and other fresh salads, plus cornbread and blueberry cake for dessert. (Beer and wine are available for purchase.) This delicious meal also includes a visit to an 1898 replica campsite.

At Liarsville Camp, you’ll discover how the prospectors of yesteryear survived while they were searching for gold. Converse with colorful, in-costume period characters, from gold-diggers to gold-digging madams, and enjoy this glimpse of life during the Klondike Gold Rush. Visit the Fancy Goods Gift Shop to find the perfect souvenir, and have your picture taken with the camp’s mascot, an adorable Alaskan malamute named Denali (a sled dog of northern North America).
