Hiking To This Aboveground Cave In Alaska Will Give You A Surreal Experience

Hiking through the beautiful Tongass National Forest on Alaska’s Panhandle is truly like experiencing something straight out of a dream. The beauty is unwavering and the ability to really get away from it all is the best form of total mind, body and soul rejuvenation. What’s on the surface is undeniably spectacular but when it comes to getting up close and personal with Prince of Wales island, its what’s on the inside that really counts.

With over 600 caves on the forth largest island in the United States, El Capitan Cave is 100% worth writing home about. It’s the cats meow. The total package. It’s packed with wild fossil-filled history, spectacular geological formations and more colors and textures than your eyes can endure without becoming completely enchanted. We have a feeling that your summertime bucket list is about to get an extra line added to it…
