While they keep a close eye on you, you have the chance to take candid shots of these unique creatures.
As you enjoy the scenic views of winter, take part in some outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking or snowboarding. Since Eagle River is within a chain of mountains, there are many trails that allow you to explore the depths of Eagle River.
