Alaska Photo Blog: Dawes Glacier

This is the seventh in a series of daily photo posts from an expedition to Tongass National Forest by Keith Ellenbogen, a photographer and frequent contributor to the Global Explorers Blog. He recently joined Philippe Cousteau on an expedition with The Boat Company to explore Southeast Alaska's abundant wildlife.

  1. How weird! I am reading the book "Tongass: Pulp politics and the fight for the Alaskan rain forest" by Kathie Durbin right now! So amazing to see it in photos.
