Tongass National Forest

We recently went on an Alaskan cruise.  I had never been on a cruise so I was not too sure what to expect.  I knew we would be on a big boat and there would be food and lot’s of water.  Well it was very nice and we had a great time on our cruise.  We enjoyed running around the outside of the ship with the cold wind pushing us around.  If that sounds comical you should have seen us playing basketball on the top of the ship.  We had a few stops along the way and one of our favorite stops was Sitka Alaska.  Sitka is a beautiful place.  The Bald Eagles are as common there as the vultures are here in Texas.  We had a hike planned in the Tongass National Forest while the ship was docked in port.  We saw many beautiful things while we were there.  The foliage there is amazing and there is a variety of trees.  My favorite image was when we came across this estuary.  There were some geese floating inland and I noticed the nice backdrop of the forest and the mountains.  We hope you enjoy the view.  I know we certainly did.
