A chance of lifetime trip to Anchorage to visit expecting daughter and Army officer son-in-law in April 2013. Breathtaking...Gorgeous...Majestic are understated words to describe the natural beauty of the Chugach. In April, there was still snow and cold-but a different cold than Texas. The way of life for everyone there is completely different there; so unique. Roads were in great... More

Well it's not the Tongass but stop in anyway. I would suggest Cordova for anyone looking for a secluded vacation in a beautiful area without a lot of people around.

The guided hike we took was great. Guide was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. I am not a hiker and the guide made sure that the hike went at my pace and rested when she could see I was getting tired

Took a hike on 4+ inches of packed snow into the valley surrounded by magnificent mountains. X-country skiers, hikers, dogs and mountain bikers loving on the trails in the area. Views of Mt. McKinley/Denali were breath taking. Also fantastic views of Anchorage. Definitely a must do/see.

A truly beautiful place, be aware of your surroundings. Alaska is wild and one should never forget that. I saw a lot of wildlife and a lot of wild Alaska.

I drive here winter and summer taking thousands of photos. It is awesome in the autumn. The wildlife is abundant and beautiful. Take your time and enjoy this wonderful area of Alaska. It is a good idea to have an extra 5 gallon can of gas, oil, water, snack food, coats and a medical kit in your car any time... More

Pointing my rental car south to Homer, I was mesmerized by the beauty in the Chugach National Forest. A photo op at every turn. Thank goodness for all of the pull-off areas...get the camera! I have never seen anything so gorgeous. Something you have to drive thu...bucket list material for sure.

We drove thru the forest into the Kenai peninsula. The road is in good repair, but well known for accidents (saw none) Lakes, glaciers, meadows, mountains, who can ask for anything more?
