Misty Fiords coast, Alaska
We took a flightseeing excursion out of Ketchikan into Misty Fiords — one of the highlights of our trip. We had absolutely spectacular, highly uncharacteristic weather all down the Inside Passage. You will almost never see Misty Fiords sunny like this. I demanded my money back: it wasn’t as advertised, namely misty! 🙂
This is a view of the coast from the main channel; the waterfall coming from the hanging valley at the left is Granite Creek, draining Granite Pond and Lake Manzoni. The color in the water is glacial flour coming from extant glaciers farther back in the mountains via the Chickamin River.
Our pilot explained to us that logging was actually good for the forests: "See, you don’t see any dead trees in this 2nd-growth patch that’s been logged, unlike the areas that haven’t." I tried to tell him that those dead trees represented biodiversity and sustainability: food and nest sites for woodpeckers and many other birds, clearings that support the growth of sunlight-loving species and eventually saplings that will replace the lost tree, etc etc. But somehow I doubt it took.
