The pack hadn't taken a real vacation for almost 2 years so our window to go came up, so we jumped out! First up was going to see Gramma and Grampa in Ely, MN.
|Packing the Bread Box on Saturday...don't leave me!|
|Finally, we got out for a ski adventure in Ely on Sunday.|
|This is along a power line. What's taking her so long?|
|Sandy helped with technology issues.|
|It was too warm to ski on Monday.|
|We bravely crossed the bridge to the island.|
|Typical northern MN lake.|
|Sandy's slow on the rocks, but she|
doesn't have all-paw drive.
|I had to be coaxed down the scary slide.|
Some kids would have helped.
|I didn't die! Can you believe it?|
|The pack had home-made pasties and I didn't get any.|
|I had to be satisfied with the ball as I guarded the living room.|
|I supervised breakfast.|
|We had such a good time with Gramma and Grampa in Ely.|
|Tuesday we headed west, and along the way we saw our|
favorite trail (the NCT) near Walker, MN.
|Bald eagle? Dinosaur? Turkey? You decide.|
|We hiked down the the chalet at the bottom|
of the sled hill/ski trails.
|Ski trails are my favorite!|
|Top of the sled hill. You can see the chalet by Sandy's head.|
|This is the Shingobee Recreation area.|
