The Wildest Visitor

What is considered "once-in-a-lifetime" for most has become a common sight for many in Juneau, Alaska.  A pod of killer whales (orcas) visited the Gastineau Channel in Juneau last Friday afternoon (March 21, 2014).  They traveled north past the Juneau-Douglas Bridge, and about 45 minutes later, returned south since the waterway three miles north is too shallow.  What a wild way to spend the lunch break!

An orca surfaces underneath the Juneau-Douglas Bridge.  Notice the onlookers standing on the shores of Douglas Island.
