Coming down the Mt. Roberts Trail

Coming down the Mt. Roberts Trail.

Douglas Island is on the left and Mt. Juneau on the right with Gastineau Channel and downtown Juneau (including the Federal Building, Harris Harbor, and Aurora Basin) between. The Chilkat Mountains on the far side of Lynn Canal are in the far distance; the Mendenhall wetlands with the Juneau International Airport are off the end of Douglas Island and the Mendenhall Peninsula and Auke Bay are beyond that.

On The Trail Below The Cross on Mt. Roberts

On The Trail Below The Cross on Mt. Roberts.

Looking northeast from the Mt. Roberts Trail, at the top right of the picture is the northern end of Gold Ridge; on the left in the far distance is the Mt. Juneau Ridge, and just to the right of center a portion of Olds Mountain is visible. Last Chance Basin is out of the picture to the left, and out of sight – beyond and below the ridge on the far side of the bowl is Snowslide Gulch.
