Ray Benson—Island Shelter
January 15, 2005
This trip was originally to go to Ikenick Snow Park but there was
not enough snow to ski there, so we all headed for Ray Benson Snow Park.
There was plenty of snow there, so we started off on the North Loop, then
took the Circle Lake cutoff over to Island Shelter.
There we had lunch and made an unsuccessful attempt to light a fire
in the wood stove.
We decided to take the snowmobile trail back to the parking lot, as it
was the shortest route.
The group got separated into two groups on the way back and the later
group took the wrong trail for about ½ mile.
Then they turned back and finally arrived at the parking area about
4:30 to very icy cars.
