Eagle River Valley in Winter
This is the glacier carved valley of Eagle River. The peaks framing the head of the valley are between 5000 and 7000 feet tall, with a base elevation of less than 500 to 1000 feet. These are mountains on an Alpine scale just a few miles from the trailhead. Countless ridges and faces await the visitor looking for a first ascent. From left to right are the peaks of Kiliak, a false summit of Yukla, Roost Peak (in the clouds way up the valley), Polar Bear, Eagle, and Hurdygurdy.
