A Canadian Lynx takes a leisurely stroll last Saturday across the nearly completely frozen Trail River and under a Seward Highway bridge before bounding off through the snow toward the trees and Vagt Lake.

The nominally elusive cat was first spotted sitting on its haunches on the river ice watching road traffic between Seward and Moose Pass where the first annual Moose Pass Winter Rendezvous was into its second day. The morning's blue skies turned to snow later in the day and continued the week's pattern of unpredictable snowfall that accumulated into almost half a foot by Monday.

Stealth weather systems have continued to powder the area through this week as temperatures rose from single digit lows last week. The outlook is for temperatures to regularly peak above freezing through the weekend. Meanwhile snow cats are no doubt having an easier time catching those tasty rabbits.
