ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the Bremner River in Alaska. Rising in glaciers of the Chugach Mountains, the river flows westerly for 64 miles through a coastal trough that separates the Canadian border ranges and the Pacific mountain system. The Bremner traverses a vast, rugged wilderness of glaciated peaks and swift, turbid rivers. These barriers are formidable to the would-be explorer. The river is made up of three forks. The North Fork begins at 1,600 feet and provides most of the river's volume. The South Fork, smallest of the three, begins as meltwater of the Fan and other glaciers at about 1,600 feet and drops an average of about 89 feet per mile, meeting the main river some 14 miles downriver. The Middle Fork has been floated at least twice.
