ABSTRACT
The article features the Tlikakila River in Alaska. The river offers a beautiful, but all-too-short, wilderness float for intermediate boaters with good wilderness skills in a splendid mountain setting. Closely flanked by glaciers, 10,000-foot-high mountains, and perpendicular cliffs, the Tlikakila exits from Summit Lake and pours through a deep, narrow valley in the Alaska Range. The Tlikakila is a small but fast-moving glacial river fed by meltwater and runoff from the Lake Clark Pass area. The scenery is superb.
