Mendenhall Glacier

Arrived at Juneau, the capital of Alaska this afternoon and caught a bus up to the glacier.
It is about 20 minutes out of the town and the driver told us that there are no roads out of Juneau and a total of 44 miles of tarmac. Surprising for a US state capital.
Excellent trip, we even saw a bear and Darren got a photo of it's bottom, but I wasn't quick enough on the drawer. I also saw it first and told Darren and an American lady overheard. She hollered out 'theres a bear' at about 100 decibels, which I don't think helped it stay around.
Huge generalisation, but many Americans have a volume control issue.
