May 17, 2013

Breakup is a sure sign of spring

In Alaska we have another meaning for the word breakup it is where
  the solid river ice ‘breaks up’ and the river flows again.

For example we can compare the bridge picture from March

But it all means the same thing
                                                               soon it will be time to fish again…..
