Here are some shots taken around Juneau. For a State Capital, it isn't very interesting. The legislature meets in what use to be an elementary school. They say you can't reach Juneau by road, you have to fly or boat in. I've been asked by several people if I got to see the Governor. Nope. She didn't live in the Governor’s Mansion. She only came to town when it was a must situation. She says she sees no point in hanging around as a “Lame Duck” Governor. So much for respecting the folks of Alaska who put her in office. Bye the way, no one in any of the towns we visited cared to talk about her. It was almost as if she was the Governor of another state.

I really like the metal mural artwork on the side of the parking deck. If you can't drive in then the cars all came by ferry?
I love the colors of the water there. I like the differences in water colors all over the world. The colors in nature are so much more than we could ever recreate.
I like the round about as well. We have a couple of those in Decatur...they can be quite amusing. Were the locals okay with tourists? I know some places absolutely abhor tourists.

Thanks Niki, I'll send you a picture of a sign that explains the mural on the parking deck.

And yes you can get a car to Juneau via a ferry. There are no major roads that will get you that far either. No roads lead to any other town in the state from Juneau.
