While ashore, we rode to the top of Mt. Roberts on a 6-minute, 2000-foot tramway ride. Along the climb we had a close view of the Spruce, Alder and Hemlock trees and a fantastic overview of the Chilkat Mountain Range. Next, we toured the 12-mile long Mendenhall Glacier, a receding "river of ice" just 13 miles from the heart of Juneau. After that we visited a unique and refreshing rain forest glacier garden.
