Ford's Terror...Well it's not that scary
Alaska has a rainforest?

Today we are 100% dependent on the tide. We must make it into the narrow passage of Ford's Terror during high tide. We take explore the wilderness area by skiff. Again hoping to see some land life but we are a little too early in the season.

I can feel the Captain's urgency as we explore the area. We have to be out of the passage before the tide completely lowers. My adrenaline is rushing as I listen to the Captain communicate with the first mate about the tide. We do make it in time but to watch the water rush out of the passage is incredible. It is like we are whitewater rafting. I can only imagine what the first settler's thought when they explore this area by canoe...hence the name Ford's Terror.
