Juneau (also the capital of Alaska) is one of the most popular tourist city in Alaska featuring Mendenhall Glacier, Mount Roberts Tramway, and plenty of shops.
I didn’t go on the tram since its nothing special. Plus, I’ve been on a fair share of trams already, including the one in Palm Springs.
These kids were Highland dancing and bag-piping in front of the tram station. Oh my, look at the stack of cash they got! (And they aren’t even all ones…)
Mendenhall Glacier is basicly the main attraction in Juneau. Lots of people flocked here from the dock.
You can’t actually get near the glacier, so the park rangers bring a sample for you to touch everyday.
For a few extra bucks, you can get yourself a better view from the observatory.
Mendenhall Glacier is pretty similar to Glacier Bay, AK, except you look at it while standing on land.
It’s nice to know that I can be attacked by bears at any time. Very comforting feeling really.
Back at the dock, we shopped around for some goodies.
And we stopped by to get some fish and whatnot.
Smoked salmon crackers…very smokey…very good.
Canned seafood anybody?
The store also sold stuffed animal head -dolls for some reason. I guess it’s more humane than this.
We had dinner back on the cruise ship. Lamb rack with mint on the side is my favorite.
I didn’t mind having some crab legs either.
Two scopes of Vanilla Ice Cream and wafer stick.
Ya, sightseeing in the morning, shopping in the afternoon, lamb racks and crab legs for dinner. And after dinner? How about an on-board performance. Life can’t get any better.
Did I say life can’t get any better? My bad…I was wrong. Midnight Dinner.
