Saturday morning we met up with Mark and Bella to ski Swedetown trails.
|Me and Bella, we only get up here after the season has ended.|
|Finally! We're off.|
|Warm weather makes my nose itch.|
|Bella spied vermin...|
|...and I smelled some beneath the snow.|
|I bet I can dig him out!|
|I'd a got him....if everyone wouldn't have left.|
|Don't leave me!|
|I had to get to my usual spot up ahead.|
|We wanted to show how deep the snow still is,|
even after much melting. This marks a bike trail we ride.
|Me and Bella are fellow trail mutts, ya know.|
|A peek-a-boo of the big lake.|
|Oh yeah, we recommend snow baths.|
|Bella says, "Since I can't read, I guess I can't follow the directions on that sign."|
Then in the afternoon it being so nice out, Arly and Sandy got a road bike out and went for their 1st ride of the season!
|They headed out to Chassell on highway 41.|
|...and came back in on the recently plowed bike path.|
|Deep dirty banks remaining.|
|A view of Mont Ripley!|
|It was such a nice 1st ride of the year, rubbery legs and all.|
|That same afternoon, our friendly neighborhood pileated|
stopped by for lunch.
|After that he hung out on the tree looking for more goodies.|
The gold finches are changing back to yellow.
|These crow sized woodpeckers use their trails as props.|
