Determined

On the day we visited Crater Lake, we were sadly disappointed when we found that we could not see the lake due to heavy fog.

Not only that, it had snowed in the upper elevations which made the trip even more interesting.  But for these two intrepid riders, it had to be even more so.  As a long time rider myself, I couldn’t help be admire their spirit.  And, this was not a local ride for them, they started in Canada and were headed to the coast.  I do hope they had a safe ride back home as at this time of year you risk tricky weather as you head north.

p.s. Love the styling  of those Victory bikes.

The Spirit of Winter

Winters can get very cold around Lake Superior, so cold in fact almost anything can become frozen.  This truly is the spirit of winter in the northland.
