Grand Princess, 9/29/2019

This post is a test of posting from my phone.

I might start using my phone when I only have a few photos or a limited amount to say about them.

In late September in Juneau Alaska, the cruise ship season is winding down. This ship is the Grand Princess. Yesterday was the last of her weekly stops for 2019.

The weather has also turned. Or perhaps I should say “returned.” It’s gray and rainy. Most years this is unremarkable to say this as it’s mostly gray and rainy. This year we had a remarkably bright and warm summer so the transition to a few weeks of dark rainy days seems harsh.

But we need the rain. Aside from our vegetation, Juneau needs more rain to keep the hydro in hydropower.
