Yukon Delta, Sept. 22, 2002: After beginning in northern
British Columbia and flowing through the Yukon in Canada, the Yukon
River crosses Alaska before emptying into the Bering Sea. Lakes, sloughs
and ponds are scattered throughout this view from space of the Yukon
Delta. It is one of the largest river deltas in the world, and currently
protected as part of the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge.
