I can't imagine a better way to spend a sunny Juneau afternoon than by going for a helicopter flightseeing tour and landing atop a glacier. Today, with temperatures in the high 60s, I was blessed to fly with Era Helicopters on their Juneau Glacier Adventure tour. It was by far one of the best trips of my life!
Era's Juneau base is just down the road from my Douglas Island home, and I've been saying for years that I need to go on one of their once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Plus, the Taku Glacier (namesake for the infamous Taku winds that sweep through Juneau in the fall) isn't far from home either - only it's not accessible by car! So, today turned out to be a perfect day to play in the sun. On a glacier.
