"Alaska, Both Below and Above the Waterline" by Larry Cohen and Olga Torrey

Alaska is a hot tourist destination that is very cool (water temp 47 degrees Fahrenheit). Tourists travel by cruise ship and train to experience the splendor of this temperate rain forest. A few hardy explorers venture beneath the waterline to see wolf eels, salmon, a forest of giant Metridium anemones, and other amazing underwater scenes. Long time Sea Gypsy members Larry Cohen and Olga Torrey will show images that captured the beauty of this cold-water environment and the landscape above.
