airplane and clouds

This plane flew into Juneau and it ultimately landed on the water by downtown Juneau.


We are having a lot of cloudy days in Juneau. Much of the time, you can find a mountain sticking through the clouds.

Why I moved back to Juneau - 2

The temperatures when I took these pictures was about +15 to 20 degrees. I am hoping for similar temps this winter so I can make regular treks out to Mendenhall Glacier again.

Why I came back to Juneau, AK

I found some pictures from Mendenhall Glacier in the winter time. Being able to cross country out to the glacier is the reason I came back to Juneau. It is such an amazing experience to be able to go right up to ice that could easily be 200 years old. The color of the ice is quite unreal. The glacier is smaller but I am looking forward to skiing out to it again.

Here are some miscellaneous shots of various things around Juneau. The ski fence is on the way to the Ski area. The rock designs were around the glacier. I have also seen the designs by Perseverence Trail.

Villages are often hard to get to, and Hoonah is no exception. It is a 2 to 3+ hour trip and when you get there, it is a small town. You can get there by boat, plane and even a few cruise ships go to Hoonah. You can fish for Halibut in Hoonah too.
