Day 5 brought us to the Capital city of Alaska, Juneau. Fun fact is that Juneau is a bit unusual among U.S. capitals in that there are no roads connecting the city to the rest of Alaska or to the rest of North America.
For this stop we had decided to book us a photo safari excursion with Gastineau Guiding that would take us out whale watching as well as a little hike to the Mendenhall Glacier. I wasn't sure what to expect as it was a "photo" safari where the tour guide was also suppose to be able to give some photography tips and tricks along the way. We ended up absolutely loving this excursion and our primary tour guide Zach Kelly was incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife and nature but also an incredible photographer so was just a great day. We saw whales, birds, sea lions, seals, eagles, fish, and an incredible Glacier all within a few hours. So now on to the pictures.
