My husband and I recently returned from an eight-week boat trip from Seattle to Juneau (Glacier Bay) on our friend's yacht. I found Frank Riley's article, "The Glacier at Juneau Is Vista to Melt the Ice" (Aug. 8), accurate. For a city of 25,000 people and 35 miles of highway, Juneau, Alaska, has more to offer than most American cities. Mendenhall Glacier, 2,000 to 3,000 years old, is the prettiest of 10 other glaciers we viewed. Although Ketchikan, Wrangell and Petersburg are interesting, Juneau was our favorite city.
For the sport fisherman we cannot recommend the Rivers Inlet Sportsmans Club highly enough. The club offers excellent, first-class, rustic and cozy cedar cabins on huge floats. At the entrance to Rivers Inlet is the best fishing in the world. The price includes air fare from Vancouver, B.C., Canada, unlimited fishing in safe Boston whalers, rain gear and the freezing and boxing of your catch. You can contact Rivers Inlets Sportsmans Club at Box 26, Campbell River, B.C., Canada, V9W 4Z9, or call (800) 663-2644.
