ABSTRACT
The article features the Togiak River in Alaska. From headwaters at Upper Togiak Lake, the river flows from the southern foothills of the Kilbuck Mountains to Togiak Bay, draining about 2,000 square miles. Exceptionally clear, the river flows 40 to 80 feet wide in its upper reaches and 150 to 250 feet wide near its mouth over a distance of 60 miles from Togiak Lake. The 2-mile-long tuya is not within the immediate river corridor and requires a long hike to see. In its lower reaches, the Togiak slows, with large meanders and oxbows. The lower river corridor is flat, with distant hills and mountains visible inland.
