This tour is happening during one of the best months for seeing the Northern Lights in Alaska, when there are generally frequent displays and clear skies.

Day Hiking Chugach State Park

Juneau_ Capital of Alaska.
The City and Borough of Juneau is the capital city of Alaska. It is a unified municipality located on the Gastineau Channel in the Alaskan panhandle and is the 2nd largest city in the United States by area.
Juneau is Alaska's capital, however you can't get there by road. Southeast Alaska is sandwiched between the rugged coastal mountain range and the Pacific Ocean. Constructing roads between many of the towns and cities of SE Alaska is prohibitively expensive and sometimes impossible.
Access to Juneau is only by air and sea.
So if you miss the boat you have to fly out.
Downtown Juneau sits at sea level, with tides averaging 16 feet (5 m), below steep mountains about 3,500 feet (1,100 m) to 4,000 feet (1,200 m) high. Atop these mountains is the Juneau Icefield, a large ice mass from which about 30 glaciers flow; two of these, the Mendenhall Glacier and the Lemon Creek Glacier, are visible from the local road system; the Mendenhall glacier has been generally retreating; its front face is declining both in width and height
Miami-Los Angeles flight: Downtown+Miami Beach, Mississippi River Delta, 29 Palms, Big Bear 2016-3-3
Miami's Marlins Park, Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach's condos and the intracoastal waterways rush into view on takeoff toward the Atlantic Ocean.
On completion of the Gulf of Mexico crossing, the Mississippi's birdfoot mouth and the Cajun shoreline of Louisiana unfold.
This is followed by Sabine Lake and the vast refinery urban complex of Port Arthur and Beaumont, and, farther inland, the Texas A&M University city of College Station, located in the midst of Texas's I-10/I-35/I-45 triangle--before the arrival of the oil rigs and the sand hills of central-west Texas.
The arid mountains of Arizona follow, while alpine Big Bear Lake and the peaks of Southern California's Transverse Range to the northeast of Los Angeles, as well as the congested rush-hour freeways at dusk, accompany the descent and final approach to LAX.

Coastal Louisiana's land loss directly contributed to the storms' human toll. In the past, extensive healthy wetlands buffered South Louisiana from storm surge, but with thinning wetlands, oyster reefs and barrier islands, the area's communities have lost much of their natural protection. - More at:

Sometimes, big things really do come in small packages. And big scenery often comes on little roads. State Route 266 is one of the shortest state highways in Arizona — with just under 20 miles of pavement cutting across the rugged rangeland south of Safford — but every mile dishes up dramatic vistas as the road rambles westward along the fringe of the Pinaleño Mountains ....
