Take the Glenn Highway from Anchorage north to Eagle River. Take the Highland Rd. Exit and come to the 3rd light and take a right at Eagle River Rd. Drive to the end of the road about 10 miles to the Nature Center. It's about a 1/4 mile hike to the beaver ponds.
This is in Eagle River Valley just north of Anchorage at the Eagle River Nature Center at the Beaver Ponds. It was taken as the snow was beginning for winter.
