But you do have a more artistic eye than I do.

Maybe I'm not going as crazy as I thought then... If you guys come in the Spring...you can be the one to crawl in there for some photos

How was the dinner? Wish I could've made it but it's snowing here now, so I made the right choice!

Compare this photo that I've outlined what I see with the other and then tell me you don't see it

I could see it before you outlined it. Looks like you need to go back there.....

Dinner was great. Good eats and conversation.
As for the mine, I see your outline and it does form familiar shapes, but I think it is still just different colored rocks mixed with shadowing.
As Hekto says, maybe another visit is in order ( with a big flashlight)

A big flash light , mounted on the barrel of a 303. Then I am in with this apparent up and coming adventure...

Thanks!! It was pretty cool driving along as the sun started to break thru the fog. I didn't think the photo would do justice but it turned out pretty good.

I had a big honking light but it was in my pack and I only crawled in a bit and took the photo. As soon as I snapped the photo I had a really strange feeling come over me that said back out I backed out and moved up the hill, looked at the photo, didn't see anything in the photo at the time and the audit only looked maybe 20' long, so I didn't bother to get the light out and moved on.

Pretty weird anyway...may require a visit later on with snowshoes. If it's a bear den, they are pretty out of it when they nap and even though they wake up, they are not aggresive. But just to be sure, next time I'll bring back up Just kidding!

Did you get much riding in this year?

Welcome kevy.

since we are now buried in snow and spring rides are on the table. I've been thinking maybe its time for the nofar rally to be in Wawa. I won't have as much frills as isplat2 and a far cry from Northrider but I'm up for the challenge.
Does may long weekend work?

That would be a good ride. I'd be interested.
Now is a good time to start planning.
