Around Juneau

Here are a few general snapshots from around town in Juneau, Alaska. Like many American state capitals, Juneau is not the biggest, most hustling and bustling town in its state. For Alaska, that would be of course Anchorage, a mere 600 miles away as the crow flies. (Good luck trying to drive there.) No, Juneau is a subdued and compact delight, tucked into the folds of towering, rolling mountains; and behind them rest enormous glaciers, reminding one just how insignificant we really are, like ants on the earth. Alaska is a big state, you’ve heard it before, and it makes you feel small. But oh, such beauty.
