I drove past here twice this week and I was reminded of the photos you had on here, and I just wanted to complement you on these great photos.

This was reminder to me that what you see from the beaten path is not always what it really is.

That's very true of all those little creeks you cross on that stretch of the Richardson Highway through the Alaska Range. They all run up beautiful little gorges. In any other state, they'd each be a state park with a big parking lot, a bunch of tourists, and well-maintained trails. Here, people just drive right by them without realizing what's there, and you can have one all to yourself whenever you want.

I don't think there's much fishing in any of them, though. I had some fun gold panning, though I didn't find enough to be worth anything.

Do those smaller creeks have much diversity in them in terms of bug life?

The diversity in these small mountain streams seems to be pretty low, but I haven't sampled them extensively.
