Tongass National Forest

At 17 million acres, the Tongass National Forest in southeastern Alaska is the largest national forest in the United States. The forest is named for the Tongass group of the Tlingit people, who inhabited the southernmost areas of the Alaska panhandle near what is now Ketchikan (source: Wikipedia). Get a job as a zipline guide in the canopy of southeast Alaska or be a driver-guide taking guests to the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau or to view the largest collection of standing totem poles in Ketchikan.
