Juneau is located in Southeast Alaska, and the current population is approximately 30,711 people. Our economy is based on government, tourism, mining, and fishing. Also, the only way you're able to get here is by boat or plane. Basically, Juneau is an amazing place to live, and you can always find something fun to do as long as you don't let the rain stop you all the time.

My friends and I went camping on an island, and we came across a rope swing, so we decided to swing on it.

Summers 2004-2007 I worked for a helicopter company (Northstar Trekking) that took people to the glacier to trek around. This is a picture from inside our hanger looking out to the ramp.

A fond memory of working at Northstar: Waiting for inbounds and taking pictures on the ramp. This is one of my favorites.

Janelle, you have some wonderful photos. I found your shots when googling about Juneau. I'm going there in a few weeks--on one of those huge cruise ships.

Well, I hope you have fun while you're here! The weather today is amazing, not too hot and not too cold. Hopefully it stays like this for when you come to visit!

Great photos!
I wonder if photography is an inherent Quimpo family hobby...just wondering is your mom, my aunt Paz II? or do you even know her?
