The glaciers are home to black and brown bears, wolves, deer and moose, and seals and whales make their home in the fjord's icy waters. No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers a lot of variety in close proximity.
