to the Grand Marais Trail Report
Yesterday, we had freezing rain and last night, well, it turned to all rain! That settled the snow but put an icy coating on everything. It's just at 32 degrees this morning but the temps are expected to plummet today. By tomorrow we should be in the single digits with sub zero wind chills. The groomers will be going out to start freezing in water holes over the weekend. We are expecting more snow over the weekend too! No predictions of how much yet but it's coming...
If you are out and about, watch for ice, downed trees, limbs and especially watch for logging trucks along Trail 443, 88 and 888. We are working on two reroutes we learned about a couple of weeks ago and that are not finalized yet. Hopefully, we'll get the go ahead on those today and we can get them signed. The south end of Trail 888 will be rerouted due to logging and add about 5 miles to that trail. The south end of Trail 443 is also being rerouted which will add several miles to that trail, as well.
Crazy 8's Open House, December 28, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Groomer Barn with Brats, dogs, refreshments and snacks! Meet the team, check out the groomers and make new friends. You will be able to get your official "Crazy 8's" gear straight from the "Home of the Crazy 8's." Oh, and we will be giving away prizes, too!
As always, Ride Safe and Bring them Home Alive!
