After finding out how cheap ferry tickets were from Skagway to Juneau and back, Celine and I decided to make an impromptu trip to Juneau! Why not?! It was CRYSTAL CLEAR out everywhere in Alaska, and southeast Alaska rarely has nice weather. We had nothing to lose!
Here is Celine, Pete, Paul and I near the Mendenhall.
A field of blue ice laid ahead of us.
Our journey to Juneau was short but sweet. Got to finally see Juneau, the only state capital not on the road system, and spent time with Carrie and Paul. Win-win situation.
On the way back to Skagway, I found my friend Brittany, from Fairbanks, on the ferry and got to catch up with her! What a small world this big state is. Well, I don't think it's just this state after all of my run-ins this summer with old friends and acquaintances, but I sure love to run into friends in random places!
Skagway on a clear day. I'm not sure I want to go back because I'll just be disappointed that the weather blows next time. It was a fun week. Now it's time to start the 'real world' or so they tell me.. and to readjust to a semi-new life!
