Alaska’s Misty Fiords (sometimes called “Misty Fjords”) National Monument wilderness area is one of the most pristine, remote wilderness areas in a state that’s full of pristine, remote wilderness areas.
Troop 4 from Ketchikan, Alaska., recently made the area their home, traveling on a fishing vessel and camping for a couple of nights on a farmstead near an area known as Rudyerd Bay. They also cleared brush from a trail near Nooya Lake.
On the way in, the Scouts dropped king crab traps and shrimp pots, and on their way out, the guys found that the traps had collected plenty of crab and shrimp for dinner. Oh, and they caught an octopus, too.
