Alaska - Day 6 - Juneau
Juneau is Alaska’s capital city. As is the norm in southeast Alaska, it was drizzling here too. Unfortunately, the weather caused our plans to go dog sledding to be cancelled because it was too foggy for the helicopter to take us to the dog camp on Mendenhall Glacier. So, we walked the city a few times and took a bus tour. We stopped at the Macaulay Salmon Hatchery, saw the king salmon returning and sampled some fresh salmon. We then went to Glacier Gardens where we took a tram ride 500 feet up the mountain through the rain forest. Lastly, we stopped at Mendenhall Glacier and saw the face of the glacier. When we got back to the ship we were greeted by a seal swimming around outside the window of our cabin.
