3/6/15 Glenburn Snowmobile Trails


Sixteen degrees but nice and sunny. Yesterday we were stuck at home with furnace repairs and just did a walk around the neighborhood. Decided to try to see if we could find the correct path on this trail- last time we got off course.

Starting off - Kelley was enthusiastic and liked the nicely packed trail.


Into the woods





When we came to the large hill we followed the trail marker left rather than going up the hill which looked to be the trail because it had had more traffic. This led us to the lake in the correct place.

First ice fishing shacks I've seen this year


This building is near the start and some research revealed it was once a school.


A beautiful day in the woods. We only met two men grooming the trails. One of them we had met on a previous hike when we got directions from him. Kelley again seemed her usual self and was out ahead of me most of the way.

  1. I've always enjoyed old buildings. They certainly always had them well-proportioned. Kind of sad to see the condition it is in--it would have been nice to save it.......

    1. Hi Sue - I liked it too and it took me awhile to find out what it had been- apparently not much interest to the locals - back when there was snow I went over to check it out and it's full of all kinds of junk

  3. What I wouldn't give to snoop around inside that old schoolhouse. Have you shown that building before?

    2. Oh John, one mans junk is this woman's treasure! I see 2 vintage canoes, an old metal chair, a crate, a wonderful old door with glass windows, a bunch of stuff on that back shelf that I can't make out, a beautiful rusty old bedspring, an old bike, a seining net, a record album, a wicker basket, a 6 pane glass window, a suitcase, all those wonderful old wall and ceiling boards and who knows what else that I can't see. I'd have a field day in there. Thanks for the link - that cyber spying made my day.

    3. I'm glad you liked it Kim- when I was a child my mother used to drag me to all kinds of auctions and sales- you two would have hit it off.

    5. I'm sure I do but I it's been so long I might have trouble sorting it from stuff picked up on my own.
