Conditions can be so changeable -- and this year really tested that. Shortly before they were to arrive, the trails were closed because of rain and lack of snow. But how it switched! It started to snow (in their honour) two days before they arrived, and snowed most days of the week while they were here.
|they arrive with intention -- the parking lot fills with trailers and trucks!|
They got in some great rides, and spent some quality time around the fire in the Lodge when the weather was just plain too cold to enjoy scooting through it at speed on a sled! Either way, they have a great time together.
|The Algonquin Snowmobile Club trails were in great shape this week.|

|The Oxtongue River Rapids, lovely any time of year. The Snowmobile Trail crosses the Hunter's Bridge over these.|
|gathering in the Lodge living room, enjoying the fire and the view and the company. Which is always superb!|
