Barn swallow by glacier pavillion

These fat little babies were perched on the side of the building, waiting for mom:
Here she is feeding one. Luckily they would start chirping and warn me for when she was coming back, but was only there for a second. Posted by Picasa

The Chilkats

This photo of the Chilkats was taken from out the road (in Juneau our road system ends at every direction at some point - out the road is anywhere up the road towards the end of the road.) Posted by Picasa

Hoary marmot photo

Saw these cute little guys up in Granite Basin alpine meadow. They are "marmota caligata". They have a high-pitched whistle they use to warn the members of the colony of approaching danger, although these guys were pretty friendly - I was able to get about 10 feet away from them.

Check out the mouthfull on the second one, I guess he was building a nest. Posted by Picasa Filed in: mammals

Granite Basin trail

After hiking up perseverance trail for 2 miles, I took the granite basin trail another 1.5 miles. It was steeper, but so beautiful. It ended in a gorgeous basin with snow, a little pond, and lots of marmots (I'll post those critters later.) Even with the clouds hanging on the mountaintops, it was nice.

Black-capped chickadee

Its sometimes hard to photograph little birds because they move so fast, but this little guy seemed to pose for me. Posted by Picasa Filed in birds

Airport dike trail

Took these photos the other day from the Airport trail. It was much lovelier trail than I expected. I'll be visiting this trail again to capture some images of birds. Posted by Picasa Filed in trails

View of Juneau from the Tram and Mt. Roberts trail

View of Juneau below and Douglas across the channel.

The view would be even better on a sunny day, but its been a good week since we had one of those. Hope I can add some "sunny" photos soon to my Juneau blog. Posted by Picasa Filed in trails
