Eklutna, Alaska the Tailrace again
« on: March 09, 2020, 12:36:28 PM »
This is the outlet for the smallish power plant. A 6 foot diameter tunnel goes through the mountain to the bottom a Eklutna Lake. This "warm" water stays ice free and often keeps this thread of the Knik River open to salt water a few miles downstream.

It's been getting popular. I actually met two people finishing up their sup paddle as I arrived. The parking lot is not plowed so it's a bit of a walk to the water.
Supthecreek's boot recommendation is spot on. I ended up with size 12s fur my size 9 feet. 11 wasn't enough. BOTH did fit my humongous cakves, even with layers of socks and polar fleece and dry suit. They stretched almost to the limit of the straps but they fit!
