How could the season be coming to a close? The base was deep, the trails, beautiful and the sights…spectacular!
Oops…Mark put the camera on “alien mode” (just kidding!) to snap this shot of me. The snowmobiles float on top of snow that was up to my knees! And to think our snow is almost all gone in the Bristolwood!
The water is running in the rivers and streams…a sure sign that things are warming up. The temperatures the rest of this week are going to be above freezing, and with accompanying rain showers, the snowmobile trails will face a certain demise…
We arrived back at the truck where Michelle had done a lot of reading for school! The kids have this week off for Spring Break, but Michelle really keeps on top of her work! She enjoyed sitting in the truck with the Scotties while we rode, but she wanted to ride “for about an hour”. Ben agreed to ride with her on over to Barne’s Corners, so after loading Mark’s sled on the trailer, the kids were off! Mark and I drove on over to Barne’s Corners in the truck to meet them.
After leaving our parking area, within maybe a half a mile, all the snow disappeared! It wasn’t until we came closer to Barne’s Corners that the snow reappeared! (and it was pretty deep, too!)
As you can see by the parking lot at Barne’s Corners, we were not the only ones out enjoying this day! With the promised rains and rising temperatures this week, the trails will soon turn to mush and no longer be very nice to ride. It is so hard to say good-bye to this enjoyable sport. Snowmobiling takes one to places one would never see to see sights that are unrivaled! We could not have enjoyed this season any more!!!
