Where there?s a hill and snow, sledding can?t be far behind

Josh Hiebert of Marion enjoys a saucer ride down a snowy slope at Marion Reservoir Sunday. He and the two friends with him, Jonathan Vogel and Chris Cardenas, are juniors at Marion High School. Cardenas said this was the first year they were sledding at the reservoir. In previous years,

most of their sledding was done in Marion. After taking a few rides downhill, the three started experimenting with a variety of conventional and unconventional sleds, including a tube, tray and shovel. Adding to the experience, the three teenagers built a ramp midway down the slope. They planned to fortify the ramp by pouring water over it, allowing it to harden overnight. If their idea worked, the plan was to return Monday for more sledding and ramping, Cardenas said.
