Built in 1931 it was later named after a gold prospector from Quebec (Joe Juneau) while Alaska was still a territory. In 1959 Alaska achieved statehood.
The Alaskan State Flag consists of The Big Dipper and the North Star on a field a deep blue.
Bus Tour from Juneau to Mendenhall Glacier
And a peek at the Mendenhall Glacier
and a nice tour of the ice caves beneath the glacier
A drone's eye view of Nugget Falls in Juneau, Alaska.
(If you only watch one video on this page...watch THIS one...simply magnificent)
Another must see at Juneau is The Shrine of St. Therese
and the inside of the Shrine. They still hold mass here.
And inspired by the sand and falling water patterns at Nugget Falls...I think I'm going to pan a bit more paydirt this evening...and also add a little to my Alaskan Painting!
