We are back in Juneau on a late afternoon flight from Glacier Bay National Park.

After dinner, groceries and settling in at the Beach House B&B, I take a late evening stroll out to photograph Nugget Falls at bits of icebergs (AKA “berg-bits”) on Mendenhall Glacier.  I got some nice shots of the Falls, wrapping up about an hour after sunset.  On the way back, I shot a stranded iceberg near the shoreline.  By this point, it was around 11:00pm, well after sunset and now fairly dark.  Great time for a solo stroll back to the parking lot in excellent bear and moose habitat!  It is time to scuff my feet again as I walk, hopefully creating enough noise to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
