The Great White Highway !

I can't complain with our winter trail riding season this year. We are down a lot of snow but what we have received, and the freezing temps have kept the trails near perfect all winter. On today's ride I wandered across a recently groomed trail deep in the woods before most snowmobiles could get to it. It was like this nice white highway rolling thru the trees.

Wasn't happy because I could have taken that turn without touching the brakes, to cautious. I guess I'm getting old.
