STONE CAIRNS. What is a cairn? Webster's: "A pile of stones heaped up as a landmark."Stone piles, heaps or mounds are alternate names for cairns. Cairns have served to memorialize people, locations or events. Cairns occur in many styles and sizes, and undoubtedly were built for a number of different reasons, only some of which we can comprehend today. Fairy Falls is a local secret at Crystal Cascades near Cairns Tucked away in the dense rainforest close to Crystal Cascades is Fairy Falls, a picturesque waterfall as magical as its name. Some rock hopping is required to reach this natural plunge pool, but the end result is definitely worth it.

The next day, set out by foot or kayak to explore either Baranof or Chichagof Island—both part of the ancient Tongass National Forest. MEALS: B, L, D DAILY DAY Redoubt Lake is a large lake in the Tongass National Forest Baranof Island that has an elevation of just a few feet an easy portage for a kayak and a good place to go view bears during salmon season.
