Skwentna River and 8 Mile Slough
Roll over thumbnails to see a larger image.
The Skwentna River is, like the Yentna, fed by melt from glaciers, making the water brown. Eight Mile Slough, on the Skwentna also carries a good deal of iron, adding a deep rust color. The Skwentna braids and branches as it flows, often spreading miles from the main channel.
