This is Mendenhall Lake and Mendenhall Glacier before the 5 days of rain we have been getting. The snow is now gone and there is no longer snow on the ice covering the lake. We have an inch of water on top of the ice - rain water. We have had 40 degrees in Juneau the past 5 days or so.

We had rain yesterday and today so not much chance that I will be going out to the Glacier this weekend. It is warm too. It is about 37 degrees. This warm weather is hurting the Glacier. The warmth is why the Glacier is crumbling so very fast and we have large chunks of glacial ice in Mendenhall Lake.

I am frustrated with my computer at work. I have decided to take a break and put up pictures which I have been meaning to do for a while. These are more of Mendenhall Glacier. I have been out there about 4 or 5 times since I last put pictures up. We got a foot of new snow but it is now raining - lightly. I hope we get away from the warm and rain.
