I would say that there’s not much better than hiking up a mountain on a sunny and warm Juneau day, but… Juneau’s pretty awesome that way. No matter what you do on a sunny and warm Juneau day however, you can never go wrong by making your way to the top of a mountain!
Mt. Bradley, otherwise known as Mt. Jumbo, is a 3,337 foot peak on Douglas Island, offering great views of downtown Juneau, the backside of Douglas, the airport area, and pretty much everywhere else.
The trail is about three and a half miles long and up, up, UP. It’s well worth the effort though…
A break in the seemingly constant summer rain here in Juneau meant it was time to ditch work and head up a mountain.
The mountain of choice was Mt. Juneau, topping out at 3,576 feet. I learned a bit of Mt. Juneau trivia from its Wikipedia page, like that it’s been known as Gold Mountain and Bald Mountain in the past and that it receives 300% more rain than downtown Juneau. Crazy.
Not too many photos to share this time, as it was cold, windy, and the next wave of rain was quickly heading in, but snapped a few good ones nonetheless!
