9/18/2008--Petersburg, Alaska, USA..Fog and mist envelop the hills around the Cascade Creek cabin (SEEN AT BOTTOM) on Thomas Bay in the Tongass National Forest. Scott Roberge, of Tongass Kayak Adventure, takes visitors by water taxi to the cabin; reached in about 1 hour from nearby Petersburg, the cabin offers visitors easier access to the Alaskan wilderness without having to camp...Petersburg is on the north end of Mitkof Island, near the Tongass National Forest. A major fishing port, the town of 3500 is also a good jumping off point to see the Alaskan wilderness in south eastern Alaska. Petersburg can be reached on Alaskan Airlines via Seattle or nearby Juneau to the north...©2008 Stuart Isett. All rights reserved.
