Day 114 of Traveling the World, Juneau, Alaska. May 25, 2018.

Juneau, the capital of Alaska, is loaded with shops, cafes, restaurants, souvenirs, and indigenous clothing…..and as you can see in the photos, there are many items unique to Alaska. There are lots of luxury furs here, along with an entire pelt from a bear! Many shops display signs noting they are owned and operated by an Alaskan family. I spoke to one man who works in a jewelry store who is from Chicago. He told me that the “season” here is May to September. On October 1, every single downtown shop is closed for the winter, making the area a ghost town.

Do you just love the toppings on an Alaskan pizza? King crab and reindeer! And if you look closely at Tracy’s King Crab Shack, she is both holding a crab by the leg and her own legs are crab legs!
