Winter recreation thrives at flood control project in Far North
A sign on top of the Moose Creek Dam instructs recreators of snowmachine rules on Dec. 7 at the Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project in North Pole, Alaska. Operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District, the project grounds offer space for a variety of winter outdoor activities that include riding snowmachines from Nov. 1 to April 1. However, driving vehicles on the eight-mile dam can damage the structure and increase the risk of failure during flood season. (U.S. Army Photo by Rachel Napolitan)
