Michigan Trail Report

Paradise Area Trail Report – 03/11

March 11, 2019

25 degrees this morning and snowing. It was blowing and a snowing last night. Looks like we picked up a solid 4-5 inches with alot of drifting in my parking lot. You know what I`ll be doing today!

Like I put in my last post, I posted a notice at the barn to the guys to let me know how their trail went so I can give you an HONEST report. I heard back from 2 of them so here we go…….

Groomer Mike ran the Stump trail again. He called it good but with a TON of drifting in "siberia". That doesn`t surprise me what with all the wind last night.

Groomer Kevin ran the Falls trail again and called it "just" good. Nothing wrong with good….right? The reason for just good is the sled traffic was blowing out the mogules as fast as he could fill them in.

Haven`t heard anything from the Point guy so I can`t give you an honest report on them. The South trail #8 didn`t get run yesterday but it is getting run right now.

All for today. Keep checking back. It looks like it will really warm UP for this coming Wed. and Thurs. and then cool back down for the weekend.

Groomer Chris

Whitefish Point Bird Observatory
Broad-winged Hawk migration is an amazing phenomenon to witness.

These Broad-winged Hawks (Buteo platypterus) kettled and streamed right over the hawk deck at WPBO the other day. Nearly 300 migrated by that day.

A kettle in this instance refers to a group of raptors using a thermal, or an updraft of warm air, to get as high in the sky as they can. The higher the birds can get then the less the hawks will have to flap when streaming out, saving them a lot of energy in migration, which is of vital importance during this energy-expending period.
