Jeff Owings, of the Ketchikan Snowmobile Club, carried me up Snowmachiner's Road and beyond on March 11.

The trip included a run to the Crow's Nest, a peak above 3,100 feet — taller than Ketchikan's iconic Deer Mountain on Revillagigedo Island in the Tongass National Forest, the largest temperate rainforest in the United States.

It was a phenomenal experience.

Jeff Owings, pictured here on March 11, took me along on a run up Snowmachiner's Road — an old logging spur off of Revilla Road north of the City of Ketchikan.

Farther north, enthusiasts are adamant about the name of the vehicles: snowmachines. Ketchikan being so close to Washington, there's a mix of both the Alaska name and "snowmobiles." Most of the Ketchikan Snowmobile Club simply calls them "sleds."
