“Cook's Inlet”

© 2010

“…The second highest tidal flow in the world surges in & out of Cook’s Inlet twice a day. During peak tides the surge may vary as much as 31 feet, an amazing amount of water flushing the Inlet both ways for 12 hours. To the far left are the peaks of the Neacola Mountains. In the gap drains the Chakachatna River Delta. Rising abruptly is 11,070 foot Mt. Spurr Volcano & the span of the Tordrillo Mountains. Centering the scene is 4,396 foot Mt. Susitna with the distant peaks of the Alaska Range stretching to the right.…”
