This is the third 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.
