"pretty sled dog" shot
This outing closed January with our season ski total hitting 146.6 miles! At one time, my "season goal" was 250 miles - that is trivial, we will certainly crush that milestone. Our new, revised goal is to reach 400 miles for the season - now that's a challenge!
The Route: Indiana Creek winter trailhead to & past the Dyersville junction and up to Boreas Pass Rd; then down Boreas Pass Rd to the Boreas winter trailhead.
The Conditions: packed to packed powder the entire route - we are in need of some fresh powder on the trails which Mother Nature is sending our way today!
Vital Stats: 8.4 miles; 1h 45m total; 90m moving time; 5.6 MPH moving average; 16 MPH top speed.
|A view "down Boreas Pass Rd": partly cloudy, lots of blue sky.|
|A 180 of the previous shot - looking "up Boreas Pass Rd":|
snow is a coming! woo hoo for fresh powder!
|Max & Zorro's input: let's go "up Boreas into the snowstorm!"|
The human chose otherwise and we sprinted down Boreas.
Max & Zorro forgave me and accepted "the sprint" option.
