Two rafters stand in shallow water at the edge of the Charley River headwaters. One red and one blue raft are loaded with paddles and gear. Vegetation is brown and the ground mucky. Did You Know?
The Charley River is the only completely protected watershed in National Park lands at 1.1 million acres. Arising at 4,000 ft of elevation, the Charley River runs 105 miles before emptying into the Yukon River 700 ft above sea level, for an average gradient of over 31 ft/mi.
