Lake of the Clouds

We had one of the sleds in the shop earlier this week and decided to ride up to Bergland and pick it up. We took trail 1 north to the Fisherman and had an excellent walleye breakfast. While eating breakfast the snow really started to come down and the visibility on Lake Gogebic was very reduced.

We decided to stay on shore and continued on our way up trail 1 in to Bergland. When we hit trail 8 east we crossed paths with the groomer and then it was smooth sailing. After picking up our sled from Timberline Ski-Doo we rode in to town to gas up. When we arrived we noticed that one of our favorite restaurants had burned to the ground! North Shore family restaurants caught fire a few days before and was a total loss. The freaky thing was we ate breakfast there a day or two before it burned down, SAD! After getting gas we headed out of down on 8 west and hooked up with 102 north. It was a great ride and the traffic seemed to pick up along the way. Once we hit trail 11 again we had a great ride. 18 miles of wide groomed road! It didn’t get nasty until we made our way in to Silver City. Their snow was pretty bare and the trails were rough. After heading south on trail 1 again things started to improve around White Pine. Once we got on the groomed road south of White Pine, it was awesome! We pulled in to Bergland and the snow had started to let up so we headed south on the lake. It was a quick trip down the lake and we got off at Gogebic Lodge. Then we rode trail 1 south into Presque Isle and made a stop at Skyview Lodge for some dinner. (great food by the way)
