Snow Adventures A

Snowmobiles or Snow Machines. Whatever you want to call them, it seems that our season for using them in the Keweenaw is at an end. The temps have been warming, the groomers have stopped grooming, and our trails are toast. We're often greeted with fresh snow on a daily basis during the winter months. Managing that snow requires a lot of maintenance, and it's sometimes difficult to make time for play. Mr. Cut Off was determined, however, to take a couple of days in March to enjoy some snowmobile time with his buddy, Marty.

They set off one day to explore the tip of the Keweenaw - Mr. Cut Off on his blue Polaris and Marty on my "girly" Polaris. After leaving our place, they headed up the trail. First stop - Brockway Mountain. Mr. Cut Off snapped a few shots for us.

Brockway Mountain Drive isn't plowed, and it becomes part of the snowmobile trail system during the winter. As the guys made their way back down the mountain, they stopped at the Copper Harbor overlook.

Here's the winter view from that spot. . .

and a closeup of that sign.

I know it seems that I've just started this post, but I'll stop there for today, as we're having a busy week. I'll show you some photos taken at the tip of the peninsula next week.

All is well in the Keweenaw.
