Here There and Everywhere

The North Douglas Road

AdventureMan spotted this along the North Douglas Road as we explored all the routes that do not lead out of Juneau. Juneau can only be accessed by air or sea; there are no roads in or out of Juneau that connect to anywhere else. There is talk of “A ROAD” and people will ask you whether you are for it or against it. What do you think?

It is possible that Juneau has maintained much of its character and values by being somewhat isolated. On the other hand, perhaps this isolation has restrained Juneau from achieving its full potential.

Once the tourist season is over, there are to big things. Skiing and the Crimson Bear basketball games. Who would think that high school basketball would be so engrossing, but in a small town, the Crimson Bears are king.

We loved this gateway, made of old skis:

    • Daggero, I didn’t know! Holy Smokes! We have been on the run much of the trip and totally incommunicado. As you can imagine, on the rare occasions when we had phone coverage, we were either checking in with the new grandbaby or confirming hotel/car/flight reservations to the next location. We just got back to P’cola last night. Safe! Sound? Mentally? LLOOLL!
