June EOTA’s Weslemkoom Lake

On Saturday July 23rd the Northumberland ATV Club hosted a ride around Weslemkoom Lake and area lakes. We had 16 people attend with 12 ATV’s. It was a great day for a ride, although leading up to the ride it had been extremely hot and humid the shade of the forest trees took away the hot humid air, in the sun it was still hot but there was a breeze which kept the air moving. We stopped at a hunting camp for lunch and then proceeded to one of the small lakes for a refreshing dip before our journey back to the vehicles. The return trip was 120 km, we are in need of rain many of the water holes are dried up and most of the unwooded trails are really dusty. Unfortunately, for the other riders, they were not able to see the moose and deer which crossed the trail in front of us. It was great to see so much wild life, one of the advantages of being at the beginning of the line. Over all the ride provided a good mix for each level of rider and everyone made it around safely and without incident. Thanks to all who attended and please feel free to share your photos.

Pictures of the ride are available here.
