Kennicott River and Nizina River Professional Review and Guide
"These tributaries of the Copper River are alternative floats for getting onto the Chitina River. The Nizina gushes forth as silty meltwater from the Nizina Glacier. Big water and waves are encountered immediately.
The scenery along the Nizina is outstanding and there is good hiking in the upper river area. Folded gray limestone cliffs rise from the water, topped by lava and igneous rocks, with jagged peaks towering above. Sourdough Peak stands out for its unique rock glaciers-slides of rock mixed with ice that flow slowly down the mountain, creating the visual effect of a glacier."
