See: View of Juneau from the top of the Mt. Roberts Tramway. A round-trip ticket on the tram will cost you $35. As an alternative, you can hike up from the downtown area (challenging 2.5 miles), enjoy a meal, the nature center and some native art at the top, and ride down for free (show the tram operator your meal receipt).
Do: State Capitol tour (you get your own free personal tour – very informative)
Eat (dinner): Salt (seafood in a modern, fine dining setting)
Eat (dinner, although they serve all meals): Rookery Café (small and large plates, fresh local fare, menu changes daily)
Drink (coffee): Heritage Coffee (local chain of coffee shops)
Drink (beer): Guided tasting at Alaskan Brewing Co. Since the brewery is a few miles from the downtown area, they provide a shuttle for $15 (pick it up at their downtown storefront). Tastings are free if you drive yourself to the brewery. We drank many Alaskan Brewing beers during our trip, our favorite being the Smoked Porter.

- 07.24.21 : Got to explore the recently-reopened Antelope Canyon near Page, AZ. It’s one of those sites that lives up to the hype. One benefit of Covid restrictions is that our tour group was only five people plus guide.07.24.21 : Checked out the overview of Horseshoe Bend the day after we kayaked around it on the water.07.23.21 : Kayaked down a gentle 10 miles of the Colorado River from Horseshoe Bend to Lee’s Ferry, AZ. We got back hauled up the river by @kayakthecolorado.07.22.21 : Explored a secret little permit-only area of Vermillion Cliffs National Monumenr. No, it’s not “The Wave” but it’s similar and we were the only people to be found for miles around, so it was even better.07.21.21 : Hiked 10 miles round trip down the North Kaibab Trail to Roaring Springs. The 3,300 feet of elevation gain in the heat was tough, but it’s an incredible trail. This is the Redwall Bridge about 2.8 miles and 2,100 feet down from the rim.07.20.21 : Saw some crazy rain and thunderstorm action while at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Second pic was later that evening with clear skies.
