Yesterday, Saturday, I had plans to check out the snow along one of my favorite rivers, well, it didn’t happen. We, Eli and I, headed out to the Slate River to hike up the river and get some photos of all the snow. Once we got there, Eli decided he didn’t want to go into the snow, though I can’t really blame him, it was quite deep and he’s getting up there in age. Also I’m not sure how I would have done in the snow with my leg issues. So it was probably for the best.
So, from the Slate River I headed up to Big Erik’s Bridge and the Huron River. Too much snow there to be able to hike back along the river.
With it still being early in the day, I thought a drive out to Herman and the Herman Nestoria Road, the usually get pounded with snow and is really pretty. Well, that wasn’t the case. They did have quite a bit of snow, but I think the winds had knocked all the snow off the trees, so the drive was just that, a drive through the woods. I didn’t even take a single photo through there.
After getting back to about half way between Herman and L’Anse, I thought, what the hell, I’ll take the loop from Indian Rd then loop back to where we started, the Slate River. I missed the turn, or just didn’t see it, off of Sliver Rd that I had taken before, so continued. Oddly enough, the road I was on ended up looping back to Arvon Rd, then back down to the Slate River. Roads change in the winter, you can never tell which ones will be plowed, and as it turns out, I took the correct one.
After that, we headed back home.
I was still good to get out of the house, I needed it.
Today will be a day of some ice and snow cleanup before it gets colder this afternoon and turns everything into concrete. Then comes the snow again, they’re calling for 6-8 inches for my location. After that’s done, nothing. I’ll be relaxing and maybe watch a movie if I can find one I might like.
