Mendenhall Lake from the glacier
Another amazing Juneau perspective I don’t have the guts to get. Thanks drsphoto

I’ve never been under the glacier. Thanks for sharing.
Episode 2 of the 1960s series Heritage of Alaska features the early history of airplanes in Alaska and recommends the book the Flying North.
I ran across this series in Alaska’s Digital Archives. It was digitized by my library. I thought I’d share all the episodes with you. Here’s the series description taken from the first The Heritage of Alaska series, a weekly television and radio program created by Elmer Rasmuson, and hosted by Elmer Rasmuson and Roger Laubeand, aired in 1968. The series, with 36, five-minute episodes, highlighted various Alaskan subjects in history, art, and literature. National Bank of Alaska sponsored the program.
As you watch these episodes, remember that it was a product of its time. This is episode 1, The Purchase of Alaska.
Libraries are anything but quiet: they resound with centuries of knowledge and human experience — and I can think of no more perfect music!
