|Cruising through the upper sections of French Gulch.|
No tracks - our trail to blaze!
It was a record day on the trails for Max, Zorro and I on Wednesday...
We hit our top speed of the season: 24 MPH!!!!
We surpassed 250 total miles skijored this season!!!
We reversed one of our usual routes (Sally Barber to French Gulch instead of the reverse). It was a fast packed track for most of the route - up to Sally Barber Mine, down to French Gulch trail, up into French Gulch - all fast packed. It was not until we got to the last open meadow in the gulch that we hit untouched terrain; this 1+ mile section (out & back) was 4-8 inches to plow through.
All around a FUN, FUN, FUN day on the trails.
Vital Stats: 9 miles; 1h 55m total time; 1h 35m moving time (we had a few "loose dog" moments to stop and maneuver around); 5.7 MPH moving average; 24 MPH top speed!!!!
|More "cruising through the gulch" - you may not see a trail,|
but Max & Zorro sense it as we truck along.
|Max what a pretty & fit sleddog you are!|
Max says, "why did we stop, I'm not tired!"
|Nice view from our break/turnaround point (the last open meadow in French Gulch).|
