The Lansing Journal journeys: Juneau in July (2019)

Photo submitted by Dave Schurman

“Last July (2019), Janice and I took an Alaskan cruise for our 30th anniversary,” writes Lansing resident Dave Schurman. “We took many, many pictures of the beautiful state. Some of them included The Lansing Journal, as you can see. This one was on our way out of port at Juneau. Somehow sending them to the Lansing Journal Journeys got lost in the business of life.” (Photo: Dave Schurman)

You can have your Lansing Journal Journeys photo published too

The Lansing Journal Journeys is an award-winning feature that showcases people displaying The Lansing Journal in creative locations.

We initiated the series because we are a community newspaper, and we like to see community faces in our pages and community names in our photo credits.

Most participants preferred to use a printed copy of the newspaper in their Lansing Journal Journeys entries, but printed papers are not a requirement:
