The Southeast Continues: Juneau, AK

We took way, way to many pictures (over 500) during our nine day trip so today I thought I would present the next leg of our journey in pictures.

Our Juneau, Alaska photo journal:

On the Ferry…

The M/V Columbia.

Wonderful visit to the Alaskan Brewing Company!

The view from Mt. Roberts (Juneau below).

Bald eagles at Auk Bay.

Handsome, Eagle.

One of the many harbors, plus the mountain reflection. Makes me happy.

Whale Tail: Step 1

Whale Tail: Step 2

Whale Tail: Step 3

Beach walk on our drive “out the road.”

Mendenhall Glacier. Love. Love. Love.

View of the Mendenhall from the west glacier trail.

Lake feed by the glacier, near our campground. Great views in our own backyard.

Steaming to Sitka!

    • We really loved taking the ferry and camping. It is a rainy place, so you want to be okay with camping in the rain, but it was a great, less expensive, way to see the southeast. We also rented a car, so that helped keep some things dry πŸ™‚
