Dramatic Scenery in Alaska

By Linda Tancs

Alaska’s Misty Fjords National Monument is where Nature’s drama unfolds.  An area of unfathomable beauty, its two million breathtaking acres feature cascading waterfalls, glistening lakes, lingering mists and goliath walls of granite amidst forests of spruce, hemlock and cedar.  Located 22 miles east of Ketchican, it’s the largest wilderness in Alaska’s national forests and the second largest in the nation.  Kayaking is a popular way to experience the mighty fjords, but by seaplane you can fully experience its  charms, taking in the Tongass Narrows and volcanic Revillagigedo Island on your way.
