A gaggle of snow geese take advantage of some open water on the Kenai River Flats to rest, feed and preen Monday afternoon in Kenai. The geese stop on the flats during their spring migration north to their nesting grounds in the Arctic. A variety of ducks were sharing the water, visible from the observation deck on Bridge Access Road, with the geese.

34 yrs ago when i first got

34 yrs ago when i first got back to Alaska as an adult from living here in my teens the ground was literally white with snow geese this time of the year. There were also many canadian geese as well. I drove by monday morning and was suprized to see as many geese as there are and shared with my friend that has not been here as long of the past compared to the present number of Geese returning now.
I think it was Boyd Shaffer that use to paint many portraits of the geese that were beautiful paintings. Everythings vanishing.
