Only In Juneau

There is a "memorial service" for Romeo today.  People are gathering at the entrance of  the West Glacier Trail where he was most often seen coming from.  This is a a testament to the impact this lone wolf had on the people of Juneau.  It's a chance for people to gather and compare stories and bask in the wonderment of sharing their lives with such a magnificent creature. 

"Juneau has a history of being kinder to its local animals than a lot of places," according to Joel Bennett, a local filmmaker. 

It's one of the many reasons I love living here.
