The Local Quest to Save a Northern California Wilderness
Portland Monthly, November 16, 2015
This is Blue Creek.
Flowing through the heart of California’s redwoods about 16 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Blue Creek is a tributary of the Klamath River. It’s a stunningly pristine area of impossibly blue waters and deep green forest that is a linchpin of the region’s ecosystem. The cold waters of Blue Creek cool down an increasingly warm Klamath River, allowing salmon and Steelhead trout to continue to thrive there.Klamath River - Blue Creek
