Photographer's Note

May 22: Haines, AK

This is a view of the Chilkat River from the bus window on our drive back as we were getting close to Haines.

The Chilkat River was named by the Russians for the Chilkat group of Tlingit, who lived in the region. The name means "salmon storehouse." The river passes through British Columbia and flows southward to southeastern Alaska from the Coast Range to the Chilkat Inlet and ultimately Lynn Canal. It is about 80 kilometres (50 mi) long. It begins at Chilkat Glacier, in Alaska, flows west and south in British Columbia for 27 kilometres (17 mi), re-enters Alaska and continues southwest for another 60 kilometres (37 mi). It reaches the ocean at the abandoned area of Wells, Alaska and deposits into a long delta area.

Chilkat River is a popular fishing destination, so much that during autumn holidays many Canadians drive down from Whitehorse, Canada to fish its waters. The river is also popular for summer rafting float trips and jet boat tours.

The workshop for this entry includes:

Chilkat Irmağı Kenarından Geçiş

Bu, dönerken Haines'e yaklaşırken, otobüs penceresinden Chilkat Irmağı manzarasıdır.

Chilkat Irmağı Ruslar tarafından, bölgede yaşayan Tlingitlerin Chilkat grubundan adlandırıldı. Adı "somon deposu" anlamına geliyor. Nehir Britanya Kolombiyası'ndan geçer ve güneye doğru Güneydoğu Alaska'ya, Kıyı Silsilesi'nden Chilkat Körfezi'ne ve sonunda Lynn Kanal'a doğru akar. Yaklaşık 80 kilometre (50 mil) uzunluğundadır. Alaska’daki Chilkat Buzulu’ndan başlayarak, 27 kilometre boyunca (17 mil) Britanya Kolombiyası’nın batı ve güneyine akar, Alaska’ya tekrar girer ve 60 kilometre daha (37 mil) güneybatıya devam eder. Alaska'nın Wells bölgesinde, okyanusa ulaşır ve uzun bir delta bölgesine doğru uzanır.
