Snowmobiling in Big Sky Country - A Photo Essay

But first a stop in Rexburg, ID to see my Cuz and her beautiful babers.

A very excited boy.

Another very excited boy.

Sam looks so ready to go in this one.

Big Springs

Does it look like these three crashed? Nope. Matt, who's sled is to the far left, got into a sticky situation. This is a fairly steep slope, though you can't tell from the picture. Matt started to tip and feared he would be pinned between the tree and the sled. Jason, who's sled is in the middle, went up to help and give tips but ended up rolling his sled. He rolled off and part way down the hill before it rolled on him. You can see his "tracks" below his sled. Then, Ed went up to help them turn Jason's sled back over and his sled tipped. He ended up pinned under by the leg. Matt and Jason helped him out, then they got both sleds upright and coached Matt out of his situation. All made it safely down the slope.

The Johnson's on top of the world.

The two people who made it happen.

Looking back at the Two Top area we were on moments before.

What a blast!

Thanks Mom and Dad!

You guys look incredibly happy. I'm so glad you had such a great time.

I saw your dad yesterday at Boy Scout Headquarters yesterday, and I completely forgot to ask him about the trip.

Wow - what a trip. What a day! Makes me want to break out some of my snowmobile pictures from the past. We'll see. When everyone's in big suits we all look the same - so the pictures probably look exactly the same! How fun though.
