Knik River Delta


Dwarf Fireweed & Sweet Pea crowns speckle the entire Knik River Delta covering countless acres in this late afternoon panoramic view downriver.

At left, touching the cloud ceiling, is 6,398 foot Pioneer Peak, with the slopes of the Talkeetna Mountains in the far distance and the northwestern end of the Chugach Mountains at right.

This massive & beautiful delta, on the geologic time scale, is newly exposed over several centuries, after the immense nameless glacier that once filled & carved this valley retreated.
