Mendenhall Glacier; Juneau

Mendenhall Glacier

Once again, the powers that be in Juneau have clearly learned how to capitalize on the cruise ship trade and the several thousand passengers that come ashore each day during the season.  In addition to the downtown, Juneau houses the Alaska state capital building, the Roberts Mountain Tram, and just North of town, the Mendenhall Glacier and Visitor Center.  Set in the Gastineau Channel, Juneau boasts the busiest uncontrolled airport in the world (meaning flights arrive and depart without air traffic control).

My excursion in Juneau was a “photographer’s excursion,” which included a visit to the Mendenhall Glacier and surrounding trails.  Ironically, the rest of my family went on an excursion that included the same agenda, with perhaps better results while whale watching.  I did get the chance to hike one the trails around the Glacier Area and saw this nice waterfall.
