Fairbanks, Alaska Photo Album
Until a new sandbar was created by the silt in the Tanana River in about 2008, passengers aboard the Riverboat Discovery could see the "wedding of the rivers", where the clear waters of the Chena River flowed into the silt-laden Tanana. The sandbar effectively blocked large boats from entering the Tanana, and a new entrance to the Chena Indian Village even had to be built. This is also a very popular fishing spot.
