Our Snowmobile Trip
Kyle had the week off from work so on Tuesday night we headed to Grayling to get a days ride in. My sister Julie came over after work to stay with Emily for us. She has Wednesdays off. It took us an extra hour to get to our hotel because of the winter storm up north. We got there about 10:30pm and unloaded the sleds to get a quick ride in. We rode about 23 miles. The next morning we headed out and spent the day on the trails. We started at 4 Mile Rd, just south of Grayling and rode about 70 miles north to Alba. We ate lunch at Starvation Lake. The trails were beautiful, hardly any other people on them. They were the smoothest trails I have ever rode on. We ended up in Alba and got gas. We turned around and headed back to our Truck. We ended up riding 150 miles! That's a lot in 8 hours. It felt so good to be on our sleds out in nature. It was a good way to unwind after a busy week. We are already looking forward to another trip soon.
