I stopped by here once during my visit for some very tasty ice cream!

This is the Eagle River Nature Center main building.

I took a nice trail through the area.

A beaver den in Eagle River!

A beaver dam was right next to the trail.

The views along the Glenn Highway were wonderful.

This view reminded me of some of the mountains in the Richardson Range in the Northwest Territory.

Interesting rock slides could be seen along the road.

This describes the sad story of a trooper loosing his life at this point of the Glenn Highway.
