When I visited my brother in Alaska he was living in the tiny town of Cantwell, just outside of Denali National Park. From his place we could walk to the Windy Creek Trail, which is accessed from a lumber road on private property through an easement.
Jonathan and I explored a freshwater wetland, a wet meadow. Wetlands make up over 43% of Alaska's land surface area, or 130 million acres, which is 63% of the wetlands in the United States.
Alaska is a beautiful and incredibly inhospitable environment.
