RIDE'N WITH THE BOYZ & DADZ  NOVEMBER 24, 2012

This was a great day to go snowmobiling, it did have it's challenges, this is early for us, there has been a few years where riding this early wouldn't provide near the experience this was! Also with all the warm weather, an important challenge was to find a route thru Nisbet Forest over to St. Louis for lunch in such a way we don't have to cross any water! We actually saw  water running  out of the hills near St. Louis towards the South Branch. Checking out a Muskrat house near the shore on a small 1/2 mile lake, where the ice was 6" plus thick (I checked with a hatchet),  we did find the Muskrats "RUN" connecting it's home with the other neighborhood homes, and that it had substantially less ice than the surrounding area! No one got very wet! Drop and roll was the escape from the potential sound of breaking ice, for one of the boys! Sorry didn't get a picture! Ray said "Let's get off this ice!" to where the sleds were parked! Just goes to show those little rodents can keep the ice pretty thin in their swimming path. This is also indicative of how shallow the water is. And no we didn't see or catch any fish!

8:27 AM! We had got on the road earlier than normal leaving Saskatoon by 7:30. The sleds all fire right up! This time of day it's still a little dark.

 

 

 


The before picture! The forecast was for the minus 14ish temps to rise to -8 and the sun to come out by 1PM. Luckily we have great contrast in the treed hills of the Nisbet and the rolling crop production land surrounding Nisbet on our way to St. Louis.


9:49 AM Our first stop down by the edge of the South Branch near the Seeley Crossing. This is close to where the Seeley brothers, (U.S. wanted men on the run!) Ernest and Zimri homesteaded ('20's to '46/'51) by a large ravine.


11:08 AM Absolutely amazed at how much snow we have in the Nisbet!

 

 

 

 

 

 


A little OVAL RACE'IN in the hollows!

 

 


Taking a breather!

Ghost Train

 


Bridge!

 


12:36 PM

 


One Great Prairie Icon in front of the other!


Ray is hamming it up with the boys!

 

 

 

 


1:04 PM Of course we must terrorize every one about the dangers of riding in the Saskatchewan wilderness!


The Elgaards calm these beasts in the Saskatchewan Prairies!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


1:17 PM Over looking a section of the South Branch near the Bucket Stop crossing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Elgaard overlooking the section of South Branch that leads to the fur trade fort sites of the HUDSON BAY
South Branch House HOUSE 1786-1794 (Gros Ventre massacre and burning). And the NORTH-WEST SOUTH BRANCH HOUSE 1786-1794. Another First Nations, Gros Ventre battle site.


1:25 PM Visiting a iron relic from the past!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


2:35 PM Ray....."Holy hanna Noel! this last 1/2 hour has been one heck of a work-out!"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


About an hour give or take from our drop off point near Adamson Lake we head out, searching for a route out of No Rock Nisbet!
