Juneau, Alaska, Photo Album
A mining-history tour on Captain John George's 18-passenger steamboat Laurie Ellen was one of the more unique excursions available in Juneau. She has a single-pass fire-tube boiler that burns scrap wood, and the canopy is designed to collect rainwater to supply the boiler. She is very similar to the ferries that ran between Juneau and the Douglas Island gold mines a century ago. Unfortunately, the Juneau Steamboat Company was closed in 2013.
