Again, another super quick entry:
Juneau: yesterday we spent the morning at Mendenhell Glacier just outside Juneau. I hiked all around the base of the glacier - stunning blues from the ice. I ended up following a fieldtrip class (yeah, I'm a stlaker haha) because they seemed to have a better trail. Got some amazing shot I'll add later.
In the afternoon we took the tramway to the top of the mountain in Juneau - they have a rescued eagle up there - holy, they are beautiful creatures to see up close. Again, I hiked a bit up the mountain, but the trails were still slippery and covered with snow, so i didn't go very far.
Skagway: this morning we went up to the Yukon Suspension Bridge (which oddly enough is located in British Columbia...?). The bridge was great - standing over a huge gorge with a rushing river. On the way up, we drove up White Pass Sumit - the scenery was breathtaking - the mountains, the valleys, everything. Well worth the trip. We even saw a bear from the safety of our bus. Excellent.
In the afternoon we panned for gold!! Aw yeeeehhhhh. We got a decent amount actually - 2.1 ounces worth approx. $20 apparentelty. Which we got to keep =)
Tomorrow we're spending the day cruising around the Hubbard Glacier - talk to you all soon!
