Echo Bend Ice
The ice climbs across Eagle River from Echo Bend stand out well in this picture taken from the Rapids Camp Yurt on March 10th, 2003. This is the first time in anyone's memory that there has been NO SNOW in the valley at this time of year! You can see that the snow line is up above 2000 feet in this picture, which means no avalanche hazard, but these routes have enough trees around them anyway to minimize the risk.
