RIDE'N WITH THE BOYZ
January 3, 2008 

The ride from Macdowall and across the  fields to Shellbrook was fine, especially when you know the country side well, but things change and you still have to watch like a hawk, especially in such low light conditions. The ride up the Miners Creek Road was as good as it gets, and if you followed the trail of snow dust in front of you, there was  no surprises. Your perspective would be lost if you pulled up, right into the snow dust in front of you.  As far as weather goes this is one of the cloudiest days I remember, which if you were out in the open would make your perception of the terrain difficult. But in the forest riding on the many old back roads and forester corridors, and the contrast and definition of the trees and surroundings provide perfect visibility. Getting Socked In in Saskatchewan doesn't have to many negatives, and in the silvery dim light it's just nice to have a different kind of day. The night ride from the North Branch was spectacular, looking back, it looked like a pack of lights peeking thru the snow dust appearing and disappearing with the rolling hills of No Rock Nisbet.

Hand signals are good.

 

 

 

 

 


Driving directly at the camera man cam be scary

Other ways to get down off the river bank.


The Old Power Line Crossing




She's a little slushy on the edge.

 


First tracks across at the power line.

 


And even the power line is good, just got to watch for the big one!

 

 

 

 


A meadow off the power line on the way to Shellbrook for lunch.

 

 


We head back thru Holbein and enter Nisbet in the most recent burn back in the eskers.

 

 


This is about as sunny as it got, and every trail  in the burn looked the same!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Once we found the range of
Holbein eskers  where the
fire tower once stood, we were home free.

 

 

 

 

 

 


We stop on the Miners Creek for, of course, a relaxing little breather!
