MENDENHALL GLACIER & NUGGET FALLS






We took a bus tour of the city of Juneau and the Mendenhall Glacier today!






A telephoto of the glacier ~ it's blue ~ icy blue!




We took a two mile round-trip hike to Nugget Falls ~ 34 years ago it was covered by the glacier ~ global warming is a real thing!!

We had a wonderful driver/tour guide ~ Archie ~ a Tlingit Indian ~ so interesting and informative!

It is a privilege to be able to see the glacier and this land of some real pioneers! Pretty rugged territory!
