There is still great riding in dah U.P. eh…..and one of my favorite places to do it is in Seney along with Don and Diane at the Fox River Motel. Trails are always incredible there and if you still want to ride that’s where I would go. I only wish I could go up there this year. Below here I am going to put Dianes Report she put out today. Also I am putting the newsletter from Graylings Ausable Valley Snowomobile Association. Then I am going to stick with the Mackinaw theme with another one of Larrys Great Pictures from yesterday of US CG Neah Bay passing in front of the Grand Hotel.
