Alaska: Juneau and Seward


We managed to get a few miles walking in during our northbound visit to Juneau. But the southbound trip, as well as the transfer in Seward, was so rainy we didn’t even get off the ship.

We really wanted to find some eagles in Juneau, and took a trip via local bus and walking to the Salmon Hatchery. We were told that the presence of much dying fish attracts eagles. But when we got there there was a sea lion hunting in the sound, so no salmon, and no eagles. Except one juvenile. Until we got back on board, and there, on the shore, one was watching us….

We did have an interesting experience. This area has a lot of Russian influence, and we had a very good lunch at a Russian restaurant. Wish we could remember the name of what we had….
