Exploring Eagle River
Winter is often the easiest time of year to travel, especially over rivers. Today Adam and I explored a bit of Eagle River by heading out directly from my front door. If fact we put our skis on in the driveway. Skiing on the river was peaceful. We saw no snowmachines in fact there were no other people at all. Eagle River if buffered by Chugach State Park and you can't see any houses from the River upriver of our Condo. There was a bit of overflow on the river and not much open water. The traveling seemed quite safe but we used caution and carried ice picks and a little bit of rescue gear.
It has been snowing steadily all day with very light fluffy snow. What a beautiful place to live!
