Eider Duck’s Winter Activities

Eider Duck, our cousin, lives near Fairbanks, in the town of North Pole, Alaska.   During the winter there is an international ice sculpting contest in Fairbanks.   These are a couple ice sculptures from previous years.

That fish is probably my favorite.   This one is also great, especially with the colored lights.

In Colorado we ride snowmobiles.   In Alaska, Eider calls them snow machines.  They are similar to motorcycles for snow.

He and his dad ride snow machines.

Eider says it is a lot of fun.

Snow machine. Is Eider driving?

Sometimes it is too cold to ride the snow machines.   But Eider is a tough duck and he likes his winter life in Alaska.
