Photo Friday: Lupine of the Juneau Ridge

by | Apr 21, 2017

This week’s Photo Friday is brought to you by the beautiful Lupine flowers of Mt. Juneau in Juneau, Alaska. These beauties dot the landscape throughout Southeast Alaska in June and July. The ridgeline that extends back from Mt. Juneau towards the Juneau Icefield is an amazing place on a clear day. This photo was taken while running that ridgeline – a 13 mile loop total with over 3,500 feet of elevation gain.

Yosemite-like cliffs reaching thousands of feet above and plunging hundreds of feet into the water below. There is truly nothing like it on earth. Kayaking Tracy Arm provides an intimate and sustainable vehicle for experiencing this tract of raw wilderness beyond what is possible on a cruise ship or day tour boat.

About The Author


Born a New Yorker and raised a New Englander, I always dreamed of going west after college in search of adventure and the outdoors. I found it in my new home in Juneau, Alaska during a year-long volunteer program after graduation. A year came and went, but I wasn't ready to leave the great white north. Four years later and still in Juneau, I decided to take another leap of faith and start Landscapes on the Run: Sustainable Adventure Travel.
