You've heard me talk about the beautiful Kenai River with its turquoise waters. I'm not exaggerating.
THE KENAI RIVER
Cooper Landing, Alaska
The River changes in its coloring. Depending on its depth, the sun and clouds, and who knows what else, the color ranges from bright turquoise to deep blue to Alaska gray. Many waters are gray here. It's the glacial run-off. All the rocks are grey and, of course, so is the sand. As glaciers move their way down mountains, they grind along the rocks and bring the gray dirt down into the water with them. Some waters up north are so silty there's no fish in them.
But down here on The Kenai (Peninsula, that is), in time, the waters will be teeming with salmon!
