March Sunset, Northeast Minnesota Bog

Sweet sunset last night while out biking.  Yep, that's right... biking over this terrain!  Thanks to the awesome hard snow conditions we have right now, you can bike in places you normally would never be able to.  I was able to bike right up this drainage and around the corner close to the ridge you see in the distance.  I didn't ride right on the ice, I stayed over land up near the edge of the trees.  Sure is cool to be able to ride areas like this and explore where you otherwise normally wouldn't be able to go, except with snowshoes.  And, to have essentially zero impact!  The snow is so hard you don't even break through to harm the plants under the snow.  The only trace that's left is a slight tire track on the surface of the hard snow that will soon melt. This sunset was a beautiful way to end an awesome day of riding!
