Gastineau Channel, Mendenhall Wetlands and Juneau Airport

Gastineau Channel Mendenhall Wetlands Juneau Airport - Photo (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelIt’s easy to get used to the summer-like weather in Juneau. Mostly clear skies and warm day have been the norm over the past few days. I am sure it won’t last forever. This view is from above the Mount Roberts trail looking back at Gastineau Channel and the Mendenhall Wetlands, the Juneau International Airport and Fritz Cover, with the Chilkat Mountains in the distance.

Summer Day In Juneau

Sunny days have been somewhat rare this summer, but Monday was one of these glorious days. I left our house and after about one hour of hiking I was in the alpine, enjoying the warm weather and the sweeping vistas over Gastineau Channel, Douglas Island, the Mendenhall Wetlands and beyond. It’s easy to sometimes forget just how beautiful it is around here and how accessible the higher places are.

Mendenhall Wetlands At High Tide

The highest tides of the month of February hit Juneau this week, reaching 18.4 feet on Wednesday. As the incoming tide displaced the ice floes in the Mendenhall Wetlands it seemed as if spring was just around the corner… or is it already here?

High Tide, Mendenhall Wetlands

We experienced several high tides exceeding 20 feet this past weekend. Here, the incoming tide pushes up Gastineau Channel and flooding the Mendenhall Wetlands. Visible across the channel is Douglas Island.

Fish Creek Pond

A low tide drains a pond in the Mendenhall Wetlands near Fish Creek Pond. A slow shutter speed accentuated the movement of the foam floating on the water past the grass. Most foam is natural and does not indicate pollution. Foam forms when water is mixed with air, such as by a waterfall or waves breaking against shore. Plants and animals release organic compounds as they decompose, and these compounds lessen the surface tension of water and create bubbles.

The View From Above Our House

This image provides a slightly different perspective than yesterday, as it looks down at our house (marked with a red dot) in downtown Juneau. Also visible beyond downtown are Harris and Aurora Harbor, Gastineau Channel, Douglas Island, as well as the Mendenhall Wetlands and the Juneau International Airport in the distance. Pictured beyond the wetlands is Auke Bay, Favorite Channel, Shelter Island, Lynn Canal and the Chilkat Peninsula on the horizon. I will continue posting pictures taken from a narrow radius around our house this week, so this image will be an exception.

Mendenhall Wetlands

undefined

No matter what season it is, rain or shine, the Mendenhall Wetlands are beautiful, like yesterday morning, when the early sun really emphasized the lushness of the grass in this view from Egan Drive.
