Canada and Alaska Rivers

The streams in Canada and Alaska were very interesting. If the river came from a glacier, it was usually a milky gray. The color comes from the ground-up rock and sediment that is produced as the glacier moves. But some streams are an amazing blue-green that is almost beyond description. This water comes from inside the glacier where the oxygen has been squeezed from it. Then there were streams that were clear and usually came from snow melt. Streams came in all sizes but most of there were huge. My camera just did not catch the true essence of the streams.
