Imagine coming down the side of a mountain with just the glow of an almost full moon and your ATV headlights lighting the steep trail. Well about 60 avid enthusiastic ATVers did that on September 21st. during the Elliot Lake Fall Fun Run.
The next day about 130 ATVers covered over 100 kilometers of trails. Some more challenging than others. The scenery was awesome as was the weather.
A shore lunch of fresh walleye prepared by the local experts in fishing kept us coming back until it was all gone. That evening a dance was held with some fine local music and again a great meal with some awesome turkey and all the fixin’s dinner.
We had early night as we had to leave at 6am the next morning to catch the ferry on Manitoulin Island so I wasn’t sure who won all those terrific door prizes.
The Elliot Lake ATV Club and Tourism Board along with numerous volunteers ensured everyone had a great time. Accommodations at the Fireside Inn www.firesideinn.org , Algo Inn www.algoinn.com and the Dunlop Lodge www.dunlop-lakelodge.com just north of town were almost filled to capacity with this event and other events that weekend.
Elliot Lake Outfitters www.elliotlakeoutfitters.com were guiding the Fly Fishing Show as it filmed an episode on one of the countless rivers.
Kim Bishop and Ginnete Bedard of the Elliot Lake Tourism Board www.cityofelliotlake.com helped me during my short stay. I will definitely be headed up that soon for some hunting and fishing.
I hope to have the photo’s taken during the run up on a photo page next week after Thanksgiving so check back then.
