I walked through Juneau, Alaska's state capitol. It is smaller than the 5th Council District but has more bars/saloons. Sorry, Gov. Palin but I can't see Russia from your back door (saw your mansion which cost $2 million to fix up and looks like it should be in Virginia not Alaska). Saw a little graffiti downtown next to city hall. There are some homeless -- god help them in the winter. And a soup kitchen downtown next to all the tourist shops.
Spent the day cruising Glacier Bay and seeing the awful impact of global warming. The glaciers are melting at a fast pace. But it was spectacular.
The seals are pupping. The puffins are floating. The terns are turning before they dive bomb the ship. It is very cold and gray and overcast.
