ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Copper River in Alaska. From its headwaters above Meadow Lake, the Copper River begins as a series of lakes and flows westerly for 32 miles into Intricate Bay on Iliamna Lake. The water moves swiftly over a boulder-strewn bottom to two waterfalls. The first waterfall drops 15 feet, the second drops 32 feet. Approaching the falls, watch for a tall cutbank on the right, half a mile above the first falls. Just upriver from the falls is a tall cutbank on the left.
