I got on my hiking shoes and went on my first official hike in Juneau. We took the 3.5 mile trail to Granite Creek (that's 7 miles round trip) back to the glacier-carved basin with amazing waterfalls on the way. We even saw some mountain goats far off on the nearby Mt. Juneau. Later that night, I even made some more friends by showing up to dinner at Reverend Matt Royston's house from Chapel By the Lake and met several other students and new friends. Afterwards, we had a great night playing Settlers of Catan (my first time). What an amazing day with new friends! I'm loving Juneau even more!
