Soaring on Thermals

When I drove into Anchorage yesterday, at one spot along the mountains, there were one-two-three-four-five bald eagles soaring around in a tall cylindrical type of pattern, one "above" the other. Our warm weather (in the 40's for day-time highs) is creating thermal air drafts against the base of the mountains and near drop-offs like cliffs. We've lost almost all of our snow from the warm weather and we've got sloppy ice all over. What a bummer, only one week before the start of the Iditarod.
