Taking a Look at Pembina Gorge
Kyli became tour guide...Have to know the territory if you plan on visiting often, or when it's mentioned in conversation. So,Corey and I were about to begin our indoctrination .
We headed for Evergreens and Birch trees as we climbed some hills to get to our destination.
Frost Fire Ski Resort", located at Wallhalla,ND.
The weather was chilly for the day but we lucked out overall, since the locals had been treated to 40+ inches of snow this winter and almost all had melted before our arrival. Actually, the snow wasn't finished for the season as we were getting a few flurries as we explored the area.
Descending into the valley to get over the river before climbing the hill on the other-side.
Alerts remained for possible water level rises once again.
The gates were still closed to keep the ATV's off the muddy terrain on the day of our visit.
This cold and wet day was great for our fact finding mission.
Conveniently located just to the left of the gate you see above, was a map outlining the Gorge's 24 miles of drive-able ATV and Dirt Bike trails.
We saw evidence of how the soil layers have become filled with moisture and slid, or washed out of place.
Searching for information about the soil profile I went here.
The discussion of the stated age of what man has perceived the earth to be and where the remains of the dinosaurs were found ensued among us as we continued on our way.
We continue to believe what God has stated in his Creation of Earth,Time and Space...I've found some Answers for the Biblical vs. Science theories we all are faced with when making our
own decisions. Take a look for yourself!
I know in time that all the rearranging slides will fill in with topsoil and vegetation but the time frame won't be immediate. It gives me an idea of the fragility of the geographical terrain.
Being able to have some recreational trails to enjoy while observing nature is a benefit for both Men and Women powered 2-wheelers...or maybe one of those little canopy covered ATV's that blows mud into your face.
All I'm saying is Explore the Great Outdoors!
Until next time...Have a Great Day!
