Talkeetna, United States - July 27, 2013: A group of tourists are about to get ready for a raft trip on the Chitina River in Alaska. The Chitina River is named for the glacier of the same name. Chitina means 'copper river' in the native Alaskan language. Rafting is a popular tourist attraction in the summer months in Alaska. The fast river current over the shallow gravel shoals makes it fun and exciting for the tourists. They also see many scenic areas of Alaska along the way.
