Snow Boating

About an hour and 40 minutes after the chance meeting described in yesterday’s post I found myself riding through these snow covered canyons, pulling a boat. Dorothy mentioned that when they come through here in the summer, it is all desert, and it seems odd to be pulling a boat through the desert. I am thinking that this is just as odd. For the record, I had my Canon D60, a long lens, and my Sony HDR-HC1 (High Def Video camera) all snug in a large water cooler. Hey, it is a good idea!

Awesome shot. The photo sort of put a knot in my stomach though. I guess I wouldn't be that brave. I love being vicarious with you at this point.

Not your ordinary boat launch I would agree with that. I'm not sure what is the oddest: towing your boat throught the desert or through the snow!!!! LOL

Did I say how beautiful this is?

I've lived in Minnesota for 10 years so I've been snow-shoeing, X-country skiing, played broom ball, watched (but was never invited to) snowmobiling, and declined ice fishing, but I have never heard of snow-boating! This sounds so fantastic as long as you don't fall into the water!!!
