There's Something Incredible About These 9 Rivers In Alaska

Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
There are over 12,000 rivers, creeks, and streams in Alaska. A lot of those are thanks to the melting snow and melting ice from the glaciers. Some of the rivers are really awesome whether it’s because they are insanely long and popular for fishing, or because they have cool features about them.
It’s hard to believe that there are barely 15,000 miles of road throughout Alaska, but over 365,000 miles of waterways… I guess it makes sense that a majority of our towns and cities are only accessible by water.
Check out these 9 one-of-a-kind rivers and streams around your state and maybe plan a trip to adventure up and down one this weekend!
