Sunday Stroll to the Mendenhall Glacier Ice Caves

What's one of the advantages of living in Juneau when the temps drop below freezing?  Trekking across the frozen Mendenhall Lake, of course.  This latest adventure involved joining friends for the two mile icy jaunt and into one of the lower Mendenhall Glacier ice caves.  It was a rare rain-free day, with the sun peeking through snow clouds on occasion.  What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
