Nabesna River Professional Review and Guide
"Flowing from the terminus of the Nabesna Glacier on the north side of the Wrangell Mountains within Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the Nabesna River moves northerly for about 80 miles to its confluence with the Chisana River, where the two streams become the Tanana River. The Nabesna cuts through a deep canyon-like valley before entering a broad outwash plain. The river is steep and swift in its upper reaches, gradually lessening as it enters Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge. Once in the flats, the Nabesna flows across an undulating plain broken by hills, forests of spruce and birch, lakes, and extensive marshes."
