The Stunning Wilderness Area In Alaska Where You Can Hear Yourself Think
Misty Fjords National Monument Wilderness Area is the name of over 2 million miles of coastal Alaskan rainforest that is protected for visitors and ecological preservation. It is strikingly beautiful with light-colored granite, crystal turquoise waters and emerald forests. About 50 to 70 million years old, glaciers gouged deep “U” shaped troughs throughout the monument. This created canals where deep, narrow waterways are formed by steep cliffs that rise thousands of feet in the air. Visit this phenomenal part of Alaska to see an wilderness area so astounding you won’t believe it is real.
