Juneau, Alaska, the Mendenhall Glacier, A train ride through snowy mountains, and the small Tlingit town of Hoonah on Chichagof Island.
I worked and traveled on a cruise ship for 6 months that sailed to Alaska for two of those months. Each week we would make a stop in Alaska’s capital for a day and in Hoonah for a day. Whenever I had a chance I got off the ship and explored the towns and took photos with my little point and shoot camera.
