We decided at the last minute to try zip-lining . You grab whatever you can out of your vacation closet and off you go.
All of the participants received an award for completing the 7 zip-line, 2 suspended- bridges and one rappel course. We were told not everyone makes it; some have to be rescued halfway through.
The course took three hours so I was starving when we returned from Douglas Island. We were lucky enough to spot this food truck that sold Fish & Chips – it was delicious and brimming with Halibut.
The streets of Juneau are packed with stores that cater to the steady stream of tourists. Many of the locals live 10 miles outside of town.
This casual outfit was perfect for zip lining. The day was unseasonably warm so I was able to lose the jacket. You wear a lot of hardware so I wanted to feel comfortable and non-bulky. However, I did wear sock with my TOMS and added a neck scarf for extra warmth.
Juneau is a very different town than Haines. Take away the scenery and you’re experiencing another tourist stop. If you’re not interested in that kind of shopping then I recommend signing-up for an activity. That way you save your exploring days for the smaller, less commercialized ports.
See you at our next stop!
