More Snowmobile Pics

We went snowmobiling again today, and I wanted to share some more pictures. In this first one there is a mountain in the distance between the pine trees, it is Mt. Timpanogos, it is the second highest mountain in Utah's Wasatch Range, with an elevation of 11,747 feet above sea level. As you can see, we were pretty high in elevation too!This next picture is just some of the area we went thru.
And this last one [click to enlarge] may not look like much, but it is a huge steep hill that is funner than any rollercoaster or amusement park ride ever. We point our snowmobiles straight up and in a standing position give it all it's got, go as high as we can, then let the machine turn and head down - what seems like straight down. The adrenaline rush is out of this world!
And now... I'm sore and tired!

So glad you visited my blog so I could find yours...WOW wish I could do that, 2 good reasons why I cannot, I'm 63 and might break, and I live in Fla.(no snow). I loved the valentine ATCs and the crazy quilt cats. I'll be back.

Although I live in Austria, we don´t have snow at the moment - so I begrudge you for this panorama!

I am loving all the snow pictures I see as I visit blogs - just beautiful. The ride sounds way to scary for me, but I am so glad that you are having fun!
