Southeast Alaska Coast Impression

Tracy Arm Waterfall (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska Travel    Water, in frozen and liquid form, is ubiquitous along the coast of Southeast Alaska. The amount of water that is actually discharged into the ocean is staggering.

Tongass National Forest

During times of heavy precipitation and high winds, the Tongass National Forest, a temperate rainforest and the largest national forest in the United States at 17 million acres, becomes a green refuge and a peaceful sanctuary for my senses.

Juneau's Temperate Rainforest Jungle

The temperate rainforest around Juneau is distinguished by its numerous canopy layers created by a mixture of old and new growth Hemlock and Spruce trees, a dense lower level shrubbery growth, and the consistent presence of lichen, mosses, and ferns as ground cover throughout the forest. To me, the dense lower level at times is reminiscent of an impenetrable jungle, especially when hiking off established trails.
