Our story picks back up here...
|After breakfast, the pack headed out for a BIG ski.|
|Hey! I almost caught a vole.|
But he was wiley and got away.
|We checked out the trail to Lost Creek Yurt. It was pretty!|
|We meet yurt dwellers heading back out.|
I got to see some kids! I love kids.
|We had lunch at the Lost Creek yurt.|
|This is a narrow trail and they rub trees with|
their Pisten Bully tracks.
|Their Bully is quite old and losing some oil!|
|Didn't need the flags today....it was groomed|
all the way to the yurt! We skied about 10 miles today.
|I continued my hunting back at our yurt.|
I had an excellent vantage point to spot squirrels.
|Spaghetti! I didn't get any, as usual.|
Although, I did get dish duty - I didn't mind.
|The next morning, we got ready to head out for more adventure.|
|Back country romping was great!|
|So was hunting.|
|This little balsam was sporting a nifty necklace.|
|Tea time, near Union Spring.|
|We love this hemlock forest.|
|The old fallen tree roots look artsy in the winter.|
|The beaver dam crossing at Union Spring.|
|We made it to our lunch stop, our favorite Cross Cut Cabin.|
|Later, we went to see the East Vista.|
That's Lake Superior on the left.
|It was a perfect place for a snow bath.|
I recommend them, ya know.
|Back at camp, Arly got out a yummy snack.|
This is from Sandy's home town of Ely, MN.
|I continued my hunting.|
|I held this squirrel at bay for quite a long time.|
|OK, I guess the setting sun means it's time to|
let the squirrels rest.
|We had such a nice ski today. Another perfect Porkies day.|
|The morning sun as seen through our yurt's door.|
|Bye bye, Little Union River yurt!|
|At least I got to meet Paul, the most friendly park employee around.|
I love him!
|We started out on a back country route.|
|It was a little rough - but no match for the pulk.|
|Then we came down South Boundary Road -|
a snowmobile trail in the winter.
|Now we're back on the ski trail.|
|And the last little trail to the park HQ.|
|We made it! Maybe you can join us next year?|
