Skiing in Anchorage - March 2, 2012

On Friday (between the Mushers Banquet and the Ceremonial Start of the Iditarod) we decided to try a new cross country ski trail in Anchorage. As we skied we saw eagles in the trees just above the trail. One of them had a green tag. They were pretty acclimated to humans. It didn't bother them at all that we were there and taking pictures.

We were near the airport. A plane took off about every two minutes over our heads. You can read the writing or the pictures on the sides/tails of the planes. You can also see that it was a gorgeous day to be outside.
