The Trail Groomers were out the other day. We saw the machine on the way to town.
They pack down the snow so that the trail is not so bumpy.
When we used to snowmobile years ago half the fun of snowmobiling was the fresh snow and making your own trail and of course getting stuck in the deep snow…we never went farther than we wanted to walk back in those days. Now there are miles and miles of groomed trails. Snowmobiling used to bring winter tourists to this area…not so much anymore..a few years of no snow kinda messed that up.
While we were in town we made a detour down to the river, it is open and Trumpeter Swans, Canada Geese and Mallard Ducks are there.
This Mallard Duck is grooming himself. I like his orange feet, they show up real well against the snow and ice.
