The second part of our tour took us to Mendenhall Glacier. The view was absolutely breathtaking. Chad took us to various photo lookout points to allow us different angles of the glacier and the surrounding areas. There was a lovely mist hovering above the mountains that surrounded us. Along one of the nearby trails, we had a black bear sighting: a momma bear with two baby cubs were eating and napping under some trees. It was an incredible sight to see. Colin and I both enjoyed the photo tour very much.
After the tour, we headed back to the cruiseship for lunch. Even though it was still pouring rain, we decided to walk around downtown Juneau. On the way into town, we passed by the Mount Roberts Tramway. Had it been a nicer day, I would have wanted to ride it up to the top. But there were too many clouds and I knew that there would have been absolutely no view. Instead, we strolled along Franklin Street and did some souvenir shopping.
