A new record

Craig and I drove up to Newaygo Saturday.  We didn't get up there until early evening so we didn't start our riding until Sunday morning.  Our friends, Glen and Sue, drove up Sunday morning and joined us.  
I was worried that the trails would be a mess from all the weekend traffic.  I didn't need to worry at all.  The trails were fantastic.... smooth with plenty of snow.  The most I have ever rode in one day before was 125 miles.  At the end of the day we had rode 165 miles!!!  For me that is a long ride.  We rode from Newaygo to Baldwin and back.  We were on the trails for almost 12 hours.  It was beautiful.  It was lightly snowing for most of the day.  
These were some friends that we met along the trail.  Their house was deep in the woods and they were excited that we stopped for a rest near their house.  The yellow lab chased me down the trail for some way when we left.  
I imagined that I would get some beautiful scenery shots but there wasn't a lot of time for that.  OK, next trip will be to the U.P...., right Honey?

Brrrrrrrrr...looks very chilly to this Florida girl.

Looks like fun too, though.

Glad you had a chance to get out and play with the toys!

Brrrrrrr is right! How do you stay warm for such a long ride? I'm glad you had such a good time.

Oh Jessica... I'm jealous. I'd love doing that!!!! We can't even get a drop of snow down here --so this ole' snow girl can't even get out and walk in the snow. I certainly enjoyed your pictures. Glad you had a fabulous time!

By the way, I added you to my list and hope you will add my blog. Thanks.
Hugs,
Betsy

I love that last shot, too. Bet it was quiet up there.
