Winter Along the Chena River

Winter Along the Chena River

This path runs behind the Carlson Center in Fairbanks, AK. In the winter, the river doesn't freeze all the way because a power plant upstream discharges hot water into the river. The warmth of the water, when it meets below zero temps, causes a thick coat of frost to form on the trees and bushes along the shore.
