Rain Forest in Alaska? - Yes!
The largest temperate rain forest in the world exists in Southeast
Alaska and British Columbia. The Tongass National Forest contains 14
percent of the world's total acreage of temperate rain forest.
The Tongass National Forest
The nation's largest national forest, covers most of Southeast Alaska,
surrounding the famous Inside Passage. It offers unique chances to view
eagles, bears, spawning salmon, and the breath-taking vistas of "wild"
Alaska. You can take a sled-dog ride on a glacier, hike boardwalk
trails, fish in streams or ocean, or just relax at a remote cabin. more>
