Mud Lake loop logging update!

On Sunday afternoon me and my pack skied out to see how the logging was coming along.
We stopped for the a veiw of the Portage canal.

This is the old trail.  Wow does it look different!

As is this.

This is looking down the hill on the northern end
of Mud lake. Still on the trail.

Ya, I'm just glad to get out in the snow now and then.

By now you should know how I LOVE kids!  Here are some photos of a drag Arly's been fixing up for the Hancock grade school..  Maybe they'll ski with me??

Many more photos can been seen here on the grooming forum.

Courtney Lake ski adventures!

Ya!  On Saturday we joined our pal Jim from Ontonagon to ski some trails he grooms.
Mark is pointing to where it says, "trail mutt approved", right?

Oh this does looks good!

Come on people!

Hunting looks good and I'm ready to go!

Does Sandy spy some vermin?

Nah, they are just gawking at the campground across Courtney Lake.

This trail up ahead was closed for logging.

I took the opportunity to cool my belly.

Here I am, Jim! You can scratch my ears ya know.

Although, hunting is keeping me pretty busy.

The cold sunny day was perfect for a winter adventure.

Board walk to nowhere?

More smart talk ensued.

What a glorious day to be in the woods.

I went slow for the picture.
Otherwise I'd never be close to these slow pokes!

This map showed where the logging was.

Next stop - The Legendary Rousseau Bar for lunch!

Then, back home that evening for the Maasto Music Jam
at the Orpheum!

Black Creek snowshoe in.

We had warm temps on Saturday with a chance of drizzle, so we headed north and hiked into the Michigan Nature Association trail to the Black Creek.
We were greeted by a friendly neighborhood dog.

Let's go!

Trail mutts need to be agile on their paws.

My new pal turned back here.

The 2-legged admired the new signs.

I admired the plentiful vermin!

My feet are ALWAYS snow shoes!

My favorite, Lake Superior.

They stopped for tea and snacks. I didn't get any.

I got to test the ice over the creek.

Solid as can be!

Photo break at the lakeshore bench.

Nary a ripple on the creek.

Let's get a going!


The sun came out some and the snow got gummy.

We had such a nice hike today. Maybe you can join us next time!

Maasto & Swedetown gorge glide!

Ya!  After Sandy got off of work this afternoon, I got out again!
We just "flew" down Sisu hill.  Ya, I'm fast!

Now on the middle bridge.
This one will get replaced next fall and
on December 6th is the Music jam to raise funds for it.
I'll be there!

Then on the Vista trail.
We climb a hill on the old trail towards Churning Rapids.

I love to run with my pack.

Paw maintenance is required....

...sometimes on a regular basis.
This is in Tomasi road ditch and we don't have enought snow yet
to groom over those rocks.

I gave her a head start here.

Won't you come ski with us soon?
