The Alaskan rain makes for a very lush forest as well as a soaked and somewhat frustrated tourist. You know there are big beautiful mountains behind the clouds, but you rarely get to see them. I’m sure the scenery surrounding Juneau is breathtaking. I guess I will just have to go back for a visit. This image is from the summit of Mt. Roberts looking down into Juneau Bay (I might have made up the name of the bay?). You can get here via a quick ride on the GoldBelt tram. On a sunny day, I bet it is gorgeous! If you have ever been there on a sunny day (or even a cloudy one) feel free to share a link. I would love to see it.
