Ice forms on the Chilkat River as the sun bathes the mountains of Takhin Ridge including Chunekukleik Mountain in early morning sunlight at sunrise. The fog-like layer is blowing dust from the river's silt. During late fall, bald eagles congregate along the Chilkat River to feed on salmon. This gathering of bald eagles in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve is believed to be one of the largest gatherings of bald eagles in the world.
