Sandy Beach on Douglas Island, Near Juneau, Alaska

Sandy Beach is right on the Gastineau Channel, a body of water separating Douglas Island from the mainland. The beach is a great spot to go for a walk with some of your favorite people or 4 legged friends. We were there on a cold (20s F) yet sunny February late morning.

Another unique tidbit about Sandy Beach is that the abandoned Treadwell Gold Mine, buildings and mill are right there on the beach.

Here are some photos I took of the beach, water activity, nearby mountains and mine mill all right there. We explored and enjoyed the moments we had on the beach.

Aircraft Sightings Near Juneau, Alaska Airport

On two different occasions we walked on snow and ice covered trails near the airport in Juneau, Alaska. One day was very overcast and the other was filled with bright sunshine. Many different kinds of aircraft landed and took off during our walks. Everything from helicopters to Alaska Airlines Cargo jets. Enjoy the photos.

Bald Eagle Sightings Near Juneau, Alaska

The first couple of eagle shots were taken as they perched in trees near Juneau.

Most of the shots were taken on scenic trails near the Juneau airport. The air temperature was 20 – 30 degrees. It was cold, snowy and icy.  As we walked I was able to get some photos of these majestic birds of prey. Some were in flight, some ate fish while sitting on the ice, some perched on tree stumps. All were amazing to see. Most of these shots were taken from at least 300-400 yards away from the birds. Plus, it was not a zoo, it was out in the wild, and the birds were moving fast. Enjoy!

Mendenhall Glacier Near Juneau, Alaska

It was mid afternoon on a Saturday in February and we walked approximately one half mile across the frozen Mendenhall Lake to see the beauty and awesomeness of the Mendenhall Glacier. An incredible sight for sure! I loved all the designs in the ice that reminded me of whipped cream. Plus the blue ice was unique and colorful. Enjoy the shots! The glacier is huge and apparently extends back 13 miles into the mountains.
