Flying over Alaska on route to Asia, the Kuskokwim river appears far below.

The Kuskokwim is about 750-miles long, and drains into the Kuskokwim Bay at about 59°30'N 162°30'W. Kuskokwim is derived from the Yupi'ik word Kusquvak, whose compound means 'big slow moving thing'. The Kuskokwim forms Alaska's second largest drainage system after the mighty Yukon.
