Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure

7600 Glacier Highway, Juneau, Alaska

Picture from inside the Mendenhall Gardens

Purchased and reclaimed in 1984 by the Bowhay family after the mountainside was destroyed by glacial runoff, this beautiful oasis in Alaska features lots of incredible sights. Here you will find upside down trees known as flower towers. Flower towers are trees planted upside down, the roots go straight up creating beautiful baskets for effervescent flowers.

A fun story about the creation of flower towers:

“ During the process of rebuilding the stream, stories have it that Steve {Bowhay} accidentally damaged the moving equipment and, in a fit of frustration, used the machine to pick up a large fallen tree stump and slam it upside down into the soft mud. The image of roots hanging down like petunia vines apparently gave him the inspiration to repeat his action, inverting over 20 other dead Spruce and Hemlock trees in order to plant 75–100 flowers in the ‘root bowls’ each year.”

The cost to go is $26.00, tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
