01.28.11 Roadside

Ya never know what you will see along side a country road.
While on a snowmachine trip up in the back country, I came upon 8 moose and really strange looking bull elk.
For those that don't understand what a snowmachine is, it is not something that you use to remove snow off sidewalks of streets.
You could compare it to a motorcycle on tracks.
This is what I ride, a Polaris 800.  It's fast and furious, very fast.  I use to be an avid downhill skier but now I am a snowmobiling fool.  I can get to those places that I could only dream about.

That's some machine you've got there! Glad it's bright yellow so you can be spotted against all of that white snow!

I am totally not up on my Elk spotting, what made this one seem strange to you I want to know. That machines looks awesome and I would love to take it out for a spin - do you need a license for it?

A fine shot. as are all of your views from your ride.
Are the newer machines as loud as older ones? I have cursed many high decibel machine while x-country skiing back when I didn't hate snow.
