    Classic Misty Fjords Flightseeing

    If you can't decide on an art museum or a scenic outdoor adventure -- may we suggest viewing works of "art" forged by the very hands of nature? The Misty Fjords National Monument "exhibits" some of the most dramatic scenery in Alaska. Boasting 2.3 million acres, it's almost four times the area of Rhode Island. But only by air can you fully appreciate the aesthetic beauty of this land, slowly crafted by the hands of nature over time -- specifically, the hands of glaciers. Massive glacier action created the ice-rimmed wilderness before you, built across the span of tens of thousands of years. Really puts things into perspective, right? So keep an eye out for the glaciers' masterpieces, including majestic fjords, cascading waterfalls, and jewel-like lakes, all of which, you will find, are dotted with abundant wildlife. Marvel at sheer walls of granite plunging over 3,000 feet into the fjords, lush forests of spruce, hemlock and cedar clinging to snow-capped peaks, in this land of incredible natural beauty and rugged grandeur. Best accessed by air, this vast untouched wilderness was first identified in the journals of explorer Captain George Vancouver in 1793. See New Eddystone Rock, a striking remnant of early geological activity, at the entrance to spectacular Rudyard Bay. This will serve as your introduction to the monument. Your pilot will be sure to point out glacier-carved fjords, beautiful river valleys, and pristine mountain lakes, identifying the scenic wonders for your viewing pleasure as you fly overhead. As mentioned, the dramatic Misty Fjords terrain is home to a multitude of wildlife. The astute observer may be rewarded with sightings of brown and black bear, Sitka black-tailed deer, wolves, moose and bald eagles. There will be plenty to view and learn about as your expert bush pilot flies over this paradise. Visible only from the air, see the splendid 1,000 foot waterfall flowing from Big Goat Lake, which was named for the region's concentration of mountain goat. Colonies of these marvelous high mountain creatures can be spotted and photographed from the air. So the next time you're looking to see some REAL art, refer to Exhibit "A": Alaska, by air!
