What a 4 day weekend I had! We took off on Thursday heading west to Cable WI to attend the IMBA Fat Bike trail grooming conference. Arly thinks he needs to chat grooming every chance he gets.
|This is the snow we saw just outside of Houghton. Ya we got some.|
|We stopped just west of Hurley WI to check out our|
favorite trails found here and we spied a
grooming sled coming off them
|It was Charlie! I love friendly groomers ya know!|
|He takes care of the Uller trail. Tanks Charlie!!!|
|Next we stopped at a FS trail near Mellon WI.|
Dogs aren't allowed...good thing I'm a trail mutt.
|We are finally going!|
|Their snow was shallow but the 2-leggeds|
found skiing was still good.
|It followed my favorite North Country Trail.|
|In Cable, we stayed at the Hummingbird Haven.|
It's Trail Mutt approved! Cathy even left some treats
for me! Here is her work address.
|Friday was the SnowBike trail|
I found some friendly folks at the demo!
Mike came from Marquette MI. I love him.
|After the conference, we headed to|
our favorite Wolverine Village,
just outside of Ironwood MI.
I met Randy and many new and
old friends here over the weekend.
|On Saturday, Sandy skied the Sisu half marathon.|
I got acquainted with some friendly folks and
KIDS while waiting for her.
|Even a friendly Gramma was there!|
|Oh yeah, they all were touching me. This is the best!|
|Jo Ellen, Diane and I huddled up by the fire.|
We all stayed at Wolverine Village!
|Yay! Sandy finally made it in.|
|She found the 1/2 marathon more enjoyable than|
the full...she can't quite go and go like me.
|Bye bye, little ones!|
|On Sunday, we bade farewell to our fellow Villagers.|
|Debbie, my ears are down here!|
She manages the Wolverine village.
Its trail mutt approved!
|Me and Junior got to romp around together.|
|Hey! I don't know about this competition for ear scratching.|
|After leaving to head home,|
we stopped off to ski our pal Jim's trail.
|They had good, deep snow.|
|We're so glad Jim is taking care of this trail!|
|It wasn't groomed a few years ago...|
not that I would mind deep snow.
|I had to stop for a drink after that deep snow bounding.|
|I've trained Arly to watch for vermin.|
He's not worth a hoot at it, however.
|We skied by a nice hemlock stand.|
|She left a little note in the log for Jim.|
|Finally, we're back in the Copper Country again. How fast can we really go here?|
We wanna get home!
