Recently during one of the warmer days this winter, children and their families were out enjoying sledding in Ludington Park in Escanaba. Donte Kressin, 12, works to maintain his balance as he slides down the hill while seated on a snowboard.
Snow flies up as Izaya Cortez, 8, slides off the snowboard he was using as a sled.
Zandreah Kressin, 5,lets out a scream as her saucer gains speed on its way down the steep slope. But then, below, the tough part comes when she works to get through snow along the bottom of the hill.
Siblings Keeley, 10, and Nora Pomeroy, 8, smile and brace for impact as their tube slides into deep snow towards the bottom of the hill.
