Thursday, May 7, 2009 RE: Eagle Village, AK

A short while back, when we first "e met" up with Big Bill, he suggested we be sure and visit the village of Eagle, not too far away from Chicken and on the banks of the Yukon River. It was already on our list of things to do this summer, but seems as though now we may not get the chance to do least not in the way we would have liked. Unseasonably warm weather made the ice breakup on the Yukon River happen in rapid fashion, and unfortunately the ice flow dammed up and caused both the ice blocks and the high flood waters to inundate the village. So while we hope for the best, it may not turn out exactly like we hope. Below, a couple pictures of the village under stress and a link to, where you can go for more photos and information on the conditions in Eagle..and plenty of other news and events and articles about Alaska:

I'll also place a link to the on my links section- seems like an excellent source of Alaska information. Thanks, Mike!
