Here are a few more pictures of the old boat and a fishing boat. We had a nice weekend in Juneau. the sun was shining and it was beautiful. I got into Mendenhall glacier twice this weekend and remembered to take my camera once. I went inside the glacial ice and took some pictures. I will get them up later this week.

I have been watching this old boat all winter. When the tide comes in, it has been flooded and only the cabin is seen slightly above water. When the tide is out, the boat just sits on the dirt. I see there is someone trying to make it floatable again.

We have continued to have sunny days this week and it has remained cold. It has generally been about 25 degrees but the sun causes the ice and snow to melt a bit, which causes slick road conditions. A fellow teacher tried to stop, couldn't and hit an SUV which hit a school bus. That was the talk of the school by kids today. I am just glad it was not me. You can see ice bergs in the lake too.

More Saturday, sunshine photos. I have probably a hundred or so. On the last set of photos, you can see some scientists walking on top of the Glacier. I thought that would be kind of great to do, but you need ropes, locating device and knowledgeable people because if you break through the snow, you are surrounded by ice.

We have sunshine like crazy today. It is about 20 degrees. I cross country skiied into Mendenhall Glacier and got a lot of pictures. I will download them tomorrow.
I am thinking of going back tonight to see the Northern Lights. There are few lights when skiiing on Mendenhall Lake to the Glacier, so I am thinking of returning to check it out. (These are old pictures)
