Learn the history of Juneau, Alaska's capital, in 1880, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris were prospecting for gold and came across nuggets "as large as beans" along Gold Creek in what is now Juneau. A mining camp formed, and within a year, it became a small town called Harrisburg. That name was soon changed to honor the naval lieutenant commander stationed there, Charles Rockwell. In 1881, the miners changed the town's name again, this time to honor Juneau.

Glacier National Park brimming with rugged mountains, reflective waters and natural ice sculptures, this aquatic garden stretches over 3.3 million acres. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this maritime sanctuary is home to some of the world’s most spectacular tidewater glaciers like Margerie Glacier and Johns Hopkins Glacier.
