Mount Roberts hikers rest with a view of Juneau, Douglas Island and the distant Chilkat Mountains on Friday.
They are above the cross and not even close to Mt. Roberts. Great picture though!

Hello arktik27, the cutline is, in fact, accurate. These folks are "Mount Roberts hikers" that are just taking a break.
And, you are correct, as well. This is not a view from the summit of Mount Roberts, which is much farther up from the cross.
Guess we're both right! Have a beautiful day.
My family and I climbed up toward Mount Roberts on June 21. From June 22-28 we were on Glacier Bay. When we returned on June 29 to fly home I saw the Juneau Empire and noticed a picture of some hikers exactly where we had been and noted it to my crew. Then I noticed it was us! From left to right that's Tim (Basalt, CO), Jamie (Asheville, NC), me (NYC), my two daughters (Hayley and Ariana, NYC), and my nephews (Dillan and Marley, Asheville, NC). Thanks for the fun surprise. That's as far as we got! We were a bit jet-lagged and had walked up via the Basin Road. The sun was so warm we just lay there and soaked it up. Who knew?! Come to Alaska and get a tan!
