Traveling into the SkyWatch -- Alaska Bits -- 22 -- Mt. Roberts Tramway, Juneau

Some thought the cloudy skies would make the lift a waste of time.
"Some" were mistaken.

The Coral Princess docked in Juneau's cruise port. A cruise liner is a whole city unto itself. There were 1968 passengers and more than 800 crew aboard. It has a print shop, laundry, medical clinic, casino, shops, a library, etc.

Looking down on Juneau (above) and Douglas (below) across Gastineau Sound.

How many of today's SkyWatchers will by heading up into the sky today?

WOW! Beautiful shots! I love the clouds myself, I think they add a bit of mystique to the whole experience!

Have a great weekend!

Great shots. I love the ones looking down (straight down one is.)

Cool photos of Juneau's skies. During our cruise my hubby took photos of our ship from the sky ride too.
