Houston Photographer | Personal work – Alaska Part 3

We finally arrived in Juneau after a day and a half on the ship and we were excited to go on our first excursion. We ach picked our own excursion and mine wasn’t until later in the afternoon so in the meantime I went on a hike around Mendenhall Glacier. I was able to get rather close to the glacier and then kept hiking around the area. At some point I did actually see some bears but they disappeared pretty quickly. It’s not hard to believe that I also ran into an Aggie! Someone recognized my ring and started talking to me and told me that her father is an Old Ag so we shared some stories while enjoying the landscape.

When it came time to go on my excursion the rain starting coming down hard and cold. We boarded our buses and were taken to a dog sled camp. I had been so excited about this particular excursion for months because it’s such an Alaskan thing to see! After a sled ride for four of us with our musher we got to stop and meet each dog on this team. I couldn’t believe just how excited they were to run! They didn’t want to stop. Then we learned all about sled dogs, mushing, and the history of the Iditarod.

Coming up next: more cruising, Sitka, and a whale feeding!
