Juneau Alaska 1998

Juneau is in the southeastern part of the state and is the state capital. Most people associate Alaska with barren snow driven plains. The southeast corner has its own micro-climate with relatively mild winters (at least by Alaskan standards) and balmy summers. The nearby Tongass National Forest is one of the nations' largest and covers most of southeast Alaska. It is some of our last, really wild space. But beware, Admiralty Island, for example, has the largest concentration of grizzly bears in the world. On a backpack and canoe trip years ago, our guides (see Alaska Discovery) were both armed with 12 gauge shotguns and no one was allowed to wander out of camp.
