This Ghost Forest Hiding In Alaska Is Hauntingly Beautiful

The Earthquake of 1964 was very destructive to Southcentral Alaska. The epicenter of the quake was at the bottom of the ocean in the Prince William Sound and all of Southcentral Alaska was affected to varying degrees of severity. The earthquake dealt a serious blow to the shoreline of the Turnagain Arm. The whole area dropped several feet and flooded this coastal forest with sea water, killing the trees. This haunting ghost forest lies along the Seward Highway, a reminder of the catastrophe.
