Going Up River
I took this picture up river along the banks of the Nushagak. It was near another town, Koliganek, one of my favorite towns in Bristol Bay but since I don’t have many pictures I will not create a Koliganek page.
There is a lot of fishing and guiding out of the smaller villages along the Nushagak, but other than that they aren’t tourist destinations.
The rivers of Bristol Bay continue to mold the environment. It might not be as majestic as the Grand Canyon, but the water is the force behind nature around Bristol Bay.
Take a Day Trip to Twin Lakes
A 15-mile drive up the Lake Road you will find Twin Lakes. I think it is kind of funny, there are actually three lakes there. On hot summer days you’ll find the locals swimming and picnicking. In August you can wander through the woods and pick huckleberries. You might see a beaver, or beautifully calm water for picture taking. It’s a nice little spot to relax. But don't expect a fancy campground. There's just a little pull-off and rough paths down to the lakes (on either side of the road) from years of use. It isn't marked, but you can't miss it. There will be one lake on the left, and the two in the picture on the right side of the road.
