Around the world in Cessna 182

June 28, 2004
Anchorage, Alaska (PANC) to Juneau, Alaska (PAJN)

I have continued today down the coast of Alaska towards the capital Juneau. Since I was going over the mountains, I climbed relatively high (13,500 ft) just to be on the safe side. The heading of 082 took me directly to my destination, there were no detours this time.

As I was leaving Anchorage, I saw many ominously looking clouds, but as I got over the mountains, the weather improved. It stayed like that all the way to Juneau, which made for an easy approach and smooth landing.

On the approach to Juneau, I got clearance to land on runway 26 so I had to fly over the city and approach the airport from the Northeast. After landing I parked my plane and left it there until I am ready for the next leg, which will hopefully be this Wednesday.
