Alaska Cruise: Day 5 - Juneau

I don't have a lot to say about Juneau because I think that the pictures should just speak for themselves.

Orcas!

Who cares about humpback whales when there are orcas? Not me.

I've wanted to see orcas in the wild ever since I was eight or nine. That was the age when I wanted to be a marine biologist. I used to watch this one nature documentary about orcas repeatedly. Then one day I saw Jaws and no longer wanted to be a marine biologist. Computer programming seemed like a much safer alternative.

After my exuberant little girl glee-fest, we went to see Medenhall Glacier. It stunning in its own right, but we only spent 45 minutes there and I was a little too busy reliving the orca-sightings in my head.
