Copper River Headwaters

If you've ever seen "Copper River Salmon" on a restaurant menu or in a market then this may be where they were born. The headwaters of the Copper River originate in this valley and the valley to immediate west, with Mt. Blackburn towering in the distance at 16,390 feet.. Tanada Lake shimmers along the valley floor. Tanada Lake and Copper Lake were once the same lake, until a big alluvial fan developed in the middle. Now the lakes are separated by two miles and water from Tanada Lake has had to find another route into the Copper River.

The Laurence Glacier

This glacier looks fun in summer. There is apparently a lake at the top of that knoll in front of the ice and the glacier empties out in streams on both sides of the knoll.

Granite Terraces

High up in the Talkeetna Mountains above Snowbird Glacier recent melting has divided the glacier into separate pieces and exposed terraced steps of granite. These "new" areas of land are extremely unstable as rocks and boulders have been very gently placed on top of each other from slowly melting ice. You must always be prepared for your footing to collapse or shift.
