Snowmobile Races

On Saturday, March 2nd, Long Lake tried to provide a soft landing for the United States X-Country Snowmobile Racers after a run around the Hubbard Prairie.  These photos were taken just north of 170th Street, on the east side of Long Lake near the ancient willow tree, where the race route propelled the snowmobiles into the air (depending on the driver's technique for space launch.)  Some slush helped ease the fall back to earth, but got a few helmets wet.
