CH BC DS Adventures!...

Huh? you're asking...on Sunday me and the pack headed north to COPPER HARBOR to have a BACK COUNTRY, DEEP SNOW adventure!
Keweenaw County seemed to have excellent snow.

This is more snow than we have at home...can we move up here?

This is where you turn to go to Mt. Bohemia. Looks good here, too!
The "covered drive", last part of Hwy 41 going to CH.

Finally! We're ready for our deep snow adventure.
Across the ponds we go...I know the way from riding
here in the summer.
Am I getting taller? Or why is the sign so close today?
Oh, it's just the wonderful deep snow.
Many trees have come down with the snow this winter.

We had easy going on the snow shoe packed trail.

This is the Woopidy-Woo trail.
Everyone knows after Woopidy-Woo comes The Edge!
These tracks are my pack side-stepping up the board walk.

The famous switchback boardwalks had good snow coverage.
I had to be conservative by this steep edge...I'm NOT getting any closer!

At the top of Brockway Mountain...
...see the tree tops below us?
We had a lunch stop on our way down The Flow.
I had lame kibble....AGAIN.

All the snow was unpacked and deep on the north side of Brockway.

OK Arly, I'm ready for a little break.  Will we camp here?

The snow drifted around the switch back.
These trails are SO MUCH fun to run in the summer.
They of course ride there tandem on these.
The sloughed off snow was tumbling and rolling down the steep hill.

Snowboarders and telemark skiers passed through here,
shredding down the hill.

The snowshoe path didn't last long. I'm getting tired!
But at least I didn't fall down.

Yay! We managed to find our way back to town.
It was a fun filled deep snow bounding day!.
