Alpine Valley 2/1

Sun Feb 01, 2009 3:09 pm

Got to Alpine Valley about 9:15 am, the lot was still relatively empty. Car read 35 F, which is a heat wave compared to what we've seen this January. Mostly sunny and warm is usually nice in SE michigan if they have a lot of snow. It softened up nicely and didn't find a single icy spot the whole time. Called it quits just after noon, which was the plan. With the heat, 41F when I left, the parking lot was turning into a muddy lake. Just a mess. It was really starting to get crowded about that time. Unfortunately this was day 1 this season for me, just getting a warmup in before my 3 day trip next weekend. Took a few cell phone pics for fun and to see how the new cell phone would work. It's funny to note that the water tower just off the back side of the hill is higher than the 'summit' of the hill. I'll see if I can add those later.
