Summer Hiking

Ok, so it's not skijoring, it's not rollerjoring, it's not even boot skiing... But hiking to the snow on July 1 counts as something worthy of making it onto our skijoring blog!

The Goal: hike to find some quality snow on July 1.
The Route: (1) hike up 1800 feet on Peak 10 of Breckenridge Ski Resort; (2) hop, play, skip, dig, roll in the wonderful snow; (3) run back down 1800 feet (leave the snow [sob] and catch on fire ;-)

Elevation about 11,500 on Breck Peak 10.
Roaring stream next to the snow - gives you an indication of how cold
the water is (it was just snow a few moments ago!)
Max says, "SNOW! Must cross the water to get to the SNOW!"
Zorro says, "OMG! SNOW! Oh, but look at that wide water crossing!
How will I get to the snow?"
Simple... Just back up, take a running start and long jump the water to
get into the snow! "Hey Bro - we made it! What shall we do first?"
Bury our heads in the snow, of course. Was there any question what
we would do first???
"Who needs water? Tasty snowcone!" says Zorro.
"Hey, what's under this snow? Must dig to find out!" declares Max.
"Hey bro, what did you find down there? Let me look (and dig)!" proclaims Zorro.
"Best July 1st I've ever had," states Zorro, "do we *really* have to
go back down? Can't we live right here?!?!!"
