Mark Nelson is spending the summer in Southeast Alaska, working as a tourist guide on the Mendenhall Glacier He's posting some nice photo's on his blog, OutdoorsPro.
In June, Nelson took some great shots of Juneau from one of the mountains behind it: High above Juneau
During the summer tourists from cruise ships pour through Juneau at the rate of something like 10,000 a day. Many of them take a helicopter tour up to the ice field and its glacier.
Once up on the glacier, many tourists can take a ride in a dog sled .
Big topic of conversation in Juneau this summer - this yacht, which has been anchored in our Auke Bay for many weeks: New Feature! Yacht of the Week! .
