The BIG ice cube

Once we went ashore in Juneau we hopped a shuttle bus to the downtown area then another bus to the Mendenhall Glacier. On the walk there we saw LOTS of sockeye salmon swimming/squirming upstream (the water is less deep than the height of the fish), a porcupine in a tree, and a spectacular waterfall (look at the size of the people closer to the falls). Our weather is spectacular in the very wettest part of America where the rainfall per year often exceeds 200 inches!  It's raining hard in Ketchikan today - but we were there yesterday and in Juneau today where big storms are expected tomorrow.
