Cruising behind Zorro on the Mountain Pride Mine single track skijor trail. Wheeee!
|Zoom, zoom, zoom we go...|
With that background... On to today's video highlight. Come along as Zorro tows me along the fun single track. If you watch closely you can see me alternating skis in versus out of track as we weave through forest. Wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
Zorro is always fascinated by old, abandoned mining cabins we encounter in the forest. They always grab his attention and we joke that he is our realtor looking for a backcountry hut for us to move into. Well, Nancy jokes that she has 4 rules for Zorro's realty hunt and this hut below seems to satisfy them all. (1) Roof - check! (2) Walls - check! (3) Running water - look at all the snow to melt and it will run when melted! (4) Heat - look at all the free firewood around the cabin!!!
|"Meets all the requirements, let's move here for 'skijoring out the front door!" declares realtor|
Zorro as he gives the property an approving glance as we trot by.
|All smiles, all speed, all fun!|
|"Get with it! I've been working hard!" declares pushy Zorro.|
"Have you ever seen such patience & composure? I deserve extra!" declares puppy Jack.
