Today on my ten-mile drive down Eagle River valley we saw one of these walk across the road.
Pretty amazing. My good friend, Cheri, was with me and she is an amateur photographer...but we didn't quite have this view of the Lynx. Those big paws just marched through the deep snow. This is the first one I have seen in the 14 years I've lived in Eagle River...the snow is so very deep this year...a lot of animals have been moving into the populated areas to look for food.
It goes almost without saying that the moose are more abundant around town than ever this winter...so much so one was found in an Anchorage hospital.
Who would ever expect to make a sign like this?
It's a Big Wild Life.
