A ski resort in the fall

We showed you a couple pictures of Ross and Ryan on the chairlift at Boyne Highlands.

It was great fun, riding the lift, and both boys seemed to really like it. Ross was a bit put-out on the way up when the chair stopped and he found the footrest moved. It’s never clear what exactly bothers the boys, but they are always hesitant about insecure footing. The rocking of the chair when it stops might actually be fun to Ross, but he had nothing solid for his feet….

We couldn’t explore much on the mountain, but there was a zipline operating sporadically, and our limited view of the countryside on the way down the lift was fun.

The buildings were so picturesque and the grounds were very well kept and gorgeous! The grass coming out from the lodge and hotel areas was level and close-cropped for golf putting!

The place was full of people riding their mountain bikes, because the one operating chairlift had been modified so that the seat cushion on every other chair was removed, and had a rack added to hold a bike! Horses were taking riders from the top of the chairlift all over the mountain.

And the day was breathtaking!
