While Aki walks with the rest of her family to Nugget Falls, happy for a chance to hang with one of her favorite canine buddies, a friend and I kayak Mendenhall Lake. The sun breaks out, showing itself to Juneau for the first time in at least a week. It burns cloud remnants away from the Mendenhall towers until it can shine directly on the glacier. We beach the boat and search for low bush blueberries. There are plenty of berry plants but few have fruit. Maybe their berries were eaten by the black bear that left its tracks on the beach a short time ago.
