Turnagain Express

Turnagain Arm Alaska has some of the swiftest tides in the world.

In this video the tide is outgoing, at a moderate pace of about 3-5 mph at the shear line.

Currents in mid channel can move up to 20mph.

The shear line I am showing here in the foreground is between the flowing floating ice,

 and beached ice from higher tides.

The valley in the distance is where the town of Hope is located.

It is about 3-4 miles accross the inlet from here to there, in this spot.

As to the music I struggled with several potential pieces.

Leave it to the Doobies for that energetic rhythm and beat, and a bit of chaotic buildup.
