Good riding.... We where UP there riding with Keweenawboy and our group from MPLS doing some backcountry riding. It was an amazing Trip. Keweenawboy really knows that country and the Snow was perfect!!!!

Skylar,

That powerline looks like one I rode with Ken from KSE on Tuesday. Looking back their where two tracks through there!!! You could hardly tell though... Another 8 or 10 inches of snow by then.
Great Pics and hopefully you had as great of time as me.
I now know that I need to get in shape to run in the powder.
