Annual Team Balls Deep Trip to the Bluff in Mass City...
The snow was set up fairly well but there was 6-8" of fresh snow on top to help out the off trail conditions. The trails were excellent everyday. There was very little traffic also.
I want to Thank Matt at the Bluff for great accomadations and the free breakfast! Thanks to Team Kesslers for the fun night of intoxification and laughs! You guys are a hoot. Too bad we could not keep up with you guys at night, but then again we were up and riding by 9:00 everyday!;-)

Not a lot of action shots but some nice pics nonetheless. Enjoy!
Day one we played around Greenland off of trail 13:

The old lighthouse that you were at, I hear it is on private property. But is it ok to still drive up to it or is there permission people are getting from someone. I found the lighthouse on my gps and thought it would be fun to try and find.

Nice pics. Any damage to the 05 XCSP after the rear hit the water?

The light house has Private Property signs on it. There was a local from Ontanogan there when we stopped and we asked him about it and he said the person who owns it has not done too much to it since he bought it. We asked about the signs and he said don't worry about them...take it as you may. We did not go in or anything like that, we just took our pictures and headed back to the river.

No damamage to the sled after the rear hit the water. The suspension was full of slush and mud but that was all. It was a biach to get out even with a snow bungee and 5 guys pulling!

Glad you all have enjoyed the pics. It was one of our funnest trips to the UP in the last 11 years!
