The part that makes Southeast special is the Tongass — the absolute feeling of freedom within its green boughs.
The Tongass National Forest and Glacier Bay National Park are at the top of my list to visit and photograph the wildlife and natural beauty.
My home is deep in the forest at the roots of the mountains. — Treebeard/J.R.R. Tolkien
More important to me, however, is the fact that the Tongass exists in its most undisturbed state.
