Skiing the North American Trail

On Sunday afternoon we joined Mark Roberts' gang for a ski down the North American trail which starts on Cliff Drive just NE of Calumet MI.  This was a wagon trail cut when the North American Mine was operating in around 1860 and was their access down to Eagle River.  We had always wanted to see it!
Some stream crossings!

I had paw maintenance to do.

I think we need to get going Obie.

Don't leave me!

We stopped to view the Big Lake.

We really did have some great views from the top.

All-paw drive worked great for me and Bally.

Sarah came too!

C'mon! Point those boards down hill and let's GO!
