Typical Juneau Fall Weather

We are back in a period of low pressure systems cycling through the Gulf of Alaska. Rain, wind, and no end in sight… This shot is looking towards St. James Bay and the Chilkat Mountains during a lull in the storm system.

Bob Hinman Memorial Cabin, St. James Bay

There are several public use cabins around Juneau, some accessible only by foot, others such as the Bob Hinman Memorial Cabin in St. James Bay pictured here during a low tide, accessible only by boat or floatplane. The cabin is a memorial to Bob Hinman, a retired state biologist and Territorial Sportsmen member. Although we didn’t stay in the cabin, we checked it out and just fell in love with its gorgeous location. We look forward to renting it later in the fall for a weekend with another family. The mountains along the Chilkat Peninsula visible in the distance are Mount Golub on the far left and Mount Nun on the far right.

St. James Bay State Marine Park

It’s tough sometimes to feel a sense of solitude around Juneau, especially during the busy summer tourist season. We found it during our boat excursion last week. After crossing Lynn Canal in building seas we found many protected anchorages in St. James Bay State Marine Park near the Chilkat Peninsula. Except for a commercial crabbing vessel occasionally checking its pots we were alone, and we really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this beautiful area. Our camp on a small island in the ‘Little Brothers’ is visible near the center of this picture.
