Snowmobiling from Grey Eagle to Glenwood MN (and some random kiting and snowboarding!)

Grant and I hung out around the parent's place this weekend for some random central MN fun! Friday night we ate at the Hub Supper Club. We used our 'steak for two' certificate they gave us for our wedding since we had our reception there :) It was tasty as usual - they have the best salad bar! We stayed at Mom and Dad's that night and said bye to them at the butt crack of dawn when they left for Wyoming - lucky ducks ;) Another snowmobile trip for them! Saturday morning we got up and had a Minnesota snowmobiling trip of our own. Pretty sure it's been at least five years since either Grant or I have snowmobiled in Minnesota. We always make trips to Wyoming and had been renting snowmobiles until this year. So, we decided to take our snowmobiles out for a ride!

We rode to the Hinnenkamp's and picked up Jaker to take a ride to Lake Minnewaska where Brody and Angie were hanging out for the weekend.

We took the Scorpion out for a cruise before we left the Hinnenkamps.

From Grey Eagle we took the trail to Big Birch Lake. We went across the lake and then hopped back on the trail through the State Park to Melrose. Here's a Minnesota Snowmobile Trail Map of where we were for this part. From Melrose we rode the Wobegon Trail to Sauk Centre and then just rode the road ditch along highway 28 the rest of the way. Here's a map of that section. On the way back we took the road ditch and then got on the trail to go to West Union and back to Sauk Centre. Here's Jake stuck :)

Once we got to Glenwood/Lake Minnewaska we relaxed for a bit and then headed out onto the lake for some creative fun. Brody and Angie have been learning how to snow kite. Apparently to learn to snowboard better you can practice behind a four wheeler or snowmobile or similar vehicle. So, we took turns pulling each other around the lake :)
