I took so many pictures that it took me almost a full day to drive through this Forest and even though the pictures don't do it justice the... More

above the trees an air of freshness awaits you. Paths to follow and highlights in every direction. Just pack your energy and plenty of water and comfortable shoes for this adventure

I hiked off the regular trails. The terrain can be challenging, but is a lot of fun. Just make sure people know where you are.

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.
