Juneau

The Alaskan capital Juneau lies on the coast in the southeast of the state, at the foot of Mt. Roberts and Mt. Juneau. It covers an area of 8430.4 km2, and since it is sandwiched between the strait and the mountains, its greater expansion was naturally prevented. Yet today it is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware.

The territory of today’s Juneau was originally a settlement of the Tlingit Indians. In 1880, gold was discovered in this area near Gold Creek, today’s Silver Bow Basin. Joe Juvenau and Richard Harris were responsible for this discovery – but it wasn’t just their fault. If it weren’t for the Indian named Kowee of the Auk tribe, who led them to the deposit, they wouldn’t find anything. The Indian living on Admiralty Island hoped that by doing so he would contribute to the better life of his people. On October 18 of the same year, a settlement was established on the site of the mining site. A year later, this temporary camp became the first city to be established here after the purchase of Alaska from the Russians. The city was originally called Rockwell or Harrisburg, but eventually the name Juneau was adopted, according to a prospector looking for gold.

Gold mining here was associated with the legend of a Chinese man named Lee Hing, also called China Joe. He helped prospectors in need, saved many people from hardship and suffering, and did not expect anything in return. Baker and librarian Lee Hing was considered the only person around Juneau who had no enemy and became a respected citizen of the city. It was almost unbelievable at the time, especially in the area of gold, because otherwise mining was mainly associated with crime. The mines were not closed until World War II in 1944 due to a lack of male labor. Today, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris lie side by side at the local Juneau’s Evergreen Cemetery.

Juneau officially became the capital of Alaska in 1900, but the government did not move here from the former capital, Sitka, until 6 years later. Since 1906, Jundau has been the capital of the state of Alaska, but it is far from the largest city. There are about 31,000 inhabitants, the state administration, fisheries and fish processing industry, wood and mining industry, as well as services related to tourism are concentrated here. Nevertheless, Juneau can be considered one of the most sleepy capitals in the United States. Some shops are only open here on days when a tourist or cruise ship is due to arrive. Transportation to and from the city is basically only possible by boat or plane.

About 16 km from the city is less than 20 km long glacier Mendenhall Glacier. The valley below is interwoven with several hiking trails and two trails lead around the northern edge of the lake to the glacier. It is recommended to enter the glacier only by experienced and properly equipped individuals. The loss of the glacier is relatively fast, losing about 8-10 meters each year. If you are a more affluent tourist, you can pay here – as well as in other places in Alaska – by helicopter, which will take you directly to the glacier.
