A weekend in Juneau

A relaxing weekend spent in Juneau, the Capital City of Alaska, provided these scenes.

Snaking down from the Juneau Ice Field, the Mendenhall Glacier calves into Mendenhall Lake, itself fed primarily by glacial meltwater and runoff from the mountains on either side.

A bear searches for fish from atop a beaver dam near Mendenhall Glacier.

Peeking through the woods at the Mendenhall Glacier.

Tree debris in a pool beside Mendenhall Lake.

Float planes parked in a scenic cove in Auke Lake.

Boats on the glassy calm water as we slowly motor out of Auke Bay Harbor.

A sail boat in Auke Bay Harbor.

A view from the fishing boat in a quiet moment of reflection (translation: looking around while waiting for a bite).

The forest towers over boats back in Auke Bay Harbor.
