Interior forest of a Beardslee IslandAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
The forest edges of the Beardslee Islands appear to be impenetrable with bushes and shrubs, but once you get past them, the island's forests open up to a moss-carpeted and lichen-rich landscape. This image is from an island once the site of a fox farm.
Glacier Bay National Park is located in southeast Alaska. The park is also an important marine wilderness area known for its spectacular tidewater glaciers, icefields, and tall coastal mountains. The park, a popular destination for cruise ships, is also known for its sea kayaking and wildlife viewing opportunities.
Glacier Bay National Park is home to humpback whales which feed in the park's protected waters during the summer, both black and grizzly bears, moose, wolves, sea otters, harbor seals, steller sea lions, and numerous species of sea birds.
The dynamically changing park, known for its large, contiguous, intact ecosystems, is a United Nations biosphere reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
