Cruise Day 4 - Juneau

Ok, one of these days I will finish these cruise posts, but I don't think today will be the day.
Anyway, day 4 we went to Juneau. It's a beautiful city. It was Dave's favorite city of the trip. He loved the way it was at the bottom of the mountains and everywhere you looked you could see mountains. Very cool.
We rode a tram to the top of one of the mountains. It was so beautiful. If we had had more time (and the kids were a little older) we would have liked to have spent more time exploring the rain forest at the top of the mountain, but it was lunch and nap time, so our visit was pretty short. But, we did get to enjoy some of the beauty.
Uncle Evan & James on the tramElizabeth & Daddy on the tram - "Are you sure this is a good idea?"
There is a bald eagle rescue place at the top of this mountain and they had this one that you could look at. They typically rescue the bald eagles, help them get healthy, and then return them to the wild, but this one was shot and lost her eye. She won't ever be returned to the wild, but at least she's being taken care of. Beautiful creatures. I've never seen one this close. Elizabeth and Aunt Amy spent a lot of time looking at it. Elizabeth was fascinated - wanted to know what they eat and all kinds of stuff. James was interested in looking at it also.
Elizabeth has the wingspan of an owl - not sure which kind, but she liked the idea. Later that day (and still now) she did the "owl show" for us. This consists of her dancing around on the bed, flapping her "wings", and saying "hoo, hoo".
