Alaska Trip Day 27: Chichagof Island

[Remember: this is just a Virtual Virus Vacation. It’s what I had booked before had to cancel coz Covid-19]
DAY 12 Chichagof Island Your course is set—wildlife-rich Alaskan wilderness. Head to the bridge or bow, and watch for whales and other creatures before tucking into Port Frederick or some other wild inlet. You’re about to get a close up look. Muskeg under foot, head out on a bushwhacking hike in the Tongass National Forest. Kayak along an inky-dark fjord, or board a skiff, eyes wide for bears on shore.”
Chichagof Island
"Chichagof is the largest of Alaska's ABC Islands Alaska (AdmiraltyBaranof, Chichagof). All three are located in the Alexander Archipelago and are part of the Tongass National Forest. Most of the islands' area is protected wilderness, with a minimal human presence on them. Chichagof is located directly north of Baranof, both being separated by the Peril Strait. Chichagof is bounded to the east by Chatham Strait, to the northeast by Icy Strait, to the northwest by Cross Sound and to the west by Gulf of Alaska.” [From here]
