Juneau At Its Best

Yesterday was one of those magical winter days in Juneau, with crystal clear skies and temperatures around 0 degrees Fahrenheit in the upper Mendenhall Valley. I decided to go for a morning hike along the Mendenhall River in the Dredge Lakes area to a spot that fellow photographer John Hyde had recommended. The vistas of the river, the mountains and the glacier were just exquisite. I saw some fresh wolf tracks too – nice to know that wolves still frequent the area, though their presence is not as visible as Romeo’s. Here, McGinnis Peak and Mount Stroller White are reflected in a stretch of open water in the Mendenhall River.
