Today was one of the lowest tides of the year, a whopping -4.3 which occurred at 7:41 am this morning in Juneau. A few adventurous friends and I explored the inter-tidal zone, which was teeming with critters of all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.
There are plenty of low-tide hot spots throughout Juneau, but for today we chose the area at Indian Cove. To get there, turn left on the first street (Otter Way) past the Auke Bay Ferry Terminal. Then drive all the way to the end of the street, and you'll see stairs leading down to the beach. Easily accessible and spectacular views - rain or shine!
