Sunday July 10, 2011

Sunday morning we traveled from our campsite along the Eagle Road about 8:15 to the community of Eagle in time to attend church at Eagle Bible Chapel. The congregation was very friendly and we were glad that we were able to worship with the folks at this friendly church. This was their Sunday to have a soup pot-luck dinner at the church and they invited us to join them after service so we accepted their invitation and got a chance to visit with the locals and learn a little more about Eagle. The population of Eagle is somewhere between 200 to 250 and the road leading to Eagle is closed for the winter so they are really isolated; far away from most conveniences that we so often take for granted. After we left the church we rode around the area; some of the young people were playing ball and others were just out enjoying the nice summer day; we recognized some of the people we had met in church this morning. We traveled back to the R.V. arriving there about 6pm. At our “dry Camp” site there was a rock fire ring with some wood nearby so we built a fire and roasted marsh mellows for a bedtime snack. Today our travel was by car only a total of 147 miles to and from as well as riding around Eagle, and Eagle Village, Ak.
