A Super Weekend, and a Hike Up Thunder Mountain

I hiked Thunder Mountain last year, and I had been dying to get back up there this summer. I hiked it with a friend yesterday, and it was glorious! It's roughly 7-8 miles round trip with 2,700 feet of elevation change so it can take a while. It's my favorite hike in Juneau (so far) because of the incredible range of view it allows. Also, lots of wildlife! We saw porcupine, marmot and several mountain goats, and a few up close like these two:

Here are a few more pictures. The glacier is Mendenhall Glacier (the biggest one in Juneau).
