Eagles on a Frozen Silver Lake

This picture of the eagles on Silver Lake was taken by a resident and sent to me.  I put it on our SLA FaceBook page and it has received over 6600 hits in a couple of days.  Our FB followers increased by 46 (141).  Thanks to everyone that follows and shows interest in Silver Lake.  A few inches of snow and cold temps here at the lake, but the lake is still not frozen completely over.  I will keep everyone updated.

Gold on Silver Lake

The first ice over of Silver Lake this season didn’t happen until January 2016.  The picture was sent via the website from a lake resident.  She captured the beauty of this winter season. So spectacular!
