The Glacier Gardens

The Glacier Gardens is a private site developed by a landscaper after a huge landslide. The trees with flowers on the top are dead cyprus trees that have been "planted" upside down in the ground with the roots up. Moss is then placed among the roots and flowers planted in the moss. The result is beautiful.

This area in the southeast portion of Alaska is very temperate, with temperatures not going much lower than freezing and higher than 75. It was in the mid sixties during our visit.
