Birch Creek

travels

flats-1

Birch Creek meanders across the Flats between Fort Yukon and the White Mountains. It has wiggled itself a new course many times over the years, leaving behind oxbow lakes dotting the landscape. I’ve been told the creek holds fish but most of the lakes do not. It doesn’t look like there is much snow down there in the wooded areas but it is knee deep under those trees.

    1. Thank you, Richard. I remember studying them in high school and college. They fascinated me, too, but I never got to see them until I came up here.
