A haunting reminder of the devastation that the earth herself can bring forth is the Ghost Forest that stands just outside of Girdwood, AK. This forest stands as an eerie reminder of a day that left its mark on Alaska in 1964, the Good Friday Earthquake. This 9.2 earthquake could be felt throughout most of Alaska and many parts of the shores of the Turnagain Arm dropped by as much as nine feet. Trees that were once supplied with fresh water were flooded by the salty sea and this resulted in them dying off. You can see evidence of this from the Seward Highway and in the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which is where this photo was taken.
