The ducks are here today, gone tomorrow.  Fun to watch.

Orange Ice

Last night the orange sky reflected on the thin sheet of ice covering the lake.  Too thin to walk on yet.

Ducks And Ice

A thin sheet of ice is forming along the shallow edges of the lake where the weeds grow, forcing the ducks to search for food in deeper water.

October Sunset

This time of year in Alaska produces some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets.  This was just after a day of rain and the clouds began to clear.

Fall is in the Air

The beginning of crisp, clear days and fall colors.  I love this time of year.  It has stayed very warm, only one morning below freezing so far.  Otherwise the temperatures are in the 40’s in the morning and 60’s during the day.  An Indian Summer for sure!

Stormy Sky

The beautiful colors of Fall against a stormy sky.

Bald Eagle Sentry

A Bald Eagle has taken to the top of our Spruce tree along the edge of the lake, a good place to spot errant fish and small critters for a meal.

Mom Of Eight

There are three families of Mallard ducks nesting along the shore of our lake, they come up onto the lawn several times a day to eat the cracked corn that I put out. The babies are adorable!

Drowning On Our Lake Yesterday

Apparently a canoe tipped over around 2:30AM yesterday morning and one fellow drowned, the other swam to shore. They found the body by dragging the lake around 6:30AM. According to news reports they wore NO life jackets. How many times do we have to have this happen before people wise-up and wear a life jacket? […]

West End Ice

The Spring winds are melting the ice on our lake, and has blown it to the west end. When the wind changes it often piles up in our cove.

Barrow’s Goldeneye

This male and female Goldeneye stopped briefly this morning to feed in the cove. They are gorgeous ducks.

My Mallards have returned

Every year this pair of Mallards make a nest in my yard down by the lake, last year they had 8 babies! It is fun to watch them feeding and swimming. They come up on the lawn and I put some cracked corn out for them to feed.

Golf on the Frozen Lake

Today there was a golf derby on the frozen lake. Many cars drove onto the ice and the occupants played golf with orange colored balls. Flags were set up to mark the greens (snows). It was a perfect day for such an activity. So far no stray balls landed in our yard or hit the […]

Fishing Derby

Today was the Fishing Derby on our lake, many vehicles arrived with people all decked out in Carhartts or snow suits. At first it was chilly and windy, but as the day progressed the sun came out and the wind slowed down. It looked like a good time was had by all.

Fishing Hut

Today there are about six or seven fishing huts in our view of the lake. Fishing must be good!

Seriously Gorgeous Sunset

Wow, we’ve had some seriously gorgeous sunsets lately.

Winter Sunset Best!

Wow, the sunset kept getting better and better. Awesome!

Winter sunset 4:00PM

The sunsets at this time of year can be spectacular. This one is shaping up to be gorgeous. I’ll keep watching and taking photos, maybe post another for tomorrow.

Wind Polished Ice

The wind has been blowing for days, and has polished the ice into a slick surface. Not good for walking right now.
