Back in civilization.

Here's a few photos from my snowmobile trip to Alpine, Wyoming.  The lodge was at 6600 feet.  Most of your riding for the weekend was 8600-9000 feet. The snow could have been better but it was still awesome.  Our cabins were strictly propane.  No electricity.  It wasn't bad.  Three meals a day.  Hot water when you're done riding.  A great place.

The sign at the trail head.

 Just a view from a place on the trail where we stopped on the way in.  It was a 28 mile trail ride just to get to the lodge.  Took almost an hour.

Stopping for look around on the ride in.  Had to have a snort of brandy.  It was tough duty but I stepped up.  Team player.

This is the parking lot.  The sleds are fired up and ready to roll.

A view of one of the cabins.

I'll have some more to post later.  I didn't take a lot of pictures as I left my camera at the cabin one day, but did get a couple more.  Waiting for some to be posted on FB from some of the other travelers so I can get them from there.  Back safe and sound. Hey Buzz, what's the them for MCW? hahahahahahaha

The theme is Best Donner Party Scene. Looks very isolated and the snow looks good from here. Our snow is finally melting this week. Oh to be single and living in the mountains.

I went snow mobiling once, I came back smelling like the inside of a gas can. Is that normal?

I'm glad you were out running with the dogs, not worrying about showers or the Internet and clearly making Buzz wish he had joined you.

Where's your movie clip? ;-)

It's isolated but with all the comforts of home. Well, most of them.

We follow the groomed trail until we find big meadows to play in. That's where the fun is.

You don't smell like gas with these new machines. I'm up. Screwed up autopost. Went back in and then it saved as a draft.
