The last few days were so stormy; windy, rainy, ugly. Typical Juneau weather. Today it's gorgeous. Brisk; 40 degrees. A perfect fall day.
Yesterday while driving home from work, I thought I caught a glimpse of snow on the mountains surrounding the glacier. But then it could have been cloud formations as well....
My first instinct was right. Here's some pictures of Juneau on a beautiful, fall day. Enjoy!
This is Mendenhall Lake, taken from Skater's Cabin at the west side of the glacier. That's Mendenhall Glacier .
Just a zoomed in version.
I find icebergs fascinating and like imagining imaginary shapes.... This is a glacier duck.
This is Skater's Cabin. I'm not certain the history behind it but in the winter when the lake is frozen, you can stay warm inside this little cabin and the frozen lake will be alive with ice skaters.
I guess it's been around for awhile...
What a beautiful view! How grand to get married here, or have a picnic.
This was, indeed, a gorgeous day.
