Editor's note: Emily's piece kicks off our weeklong series, The stories of Alaska: Sustainability and resilience on a grand scale, from our Storyfest 2018 winners, who traveled to Alaska with Lindblad Expeditions and Alaska Airlines this summer. In Emily's story, you can explore Alaska in storybook-like wonder, as she shows off the southern coastline that dances along the edges of its mountain ranges and ensconces temperate forests teeming with wildlife. See her full story — and her gorgeous photos — by clicking on the image below. We dare you to not fall in love with Alaska's beauty.
