|Cruising up the Sally Barber Mine trail.|
There was roughly an inch of new snow on the lower sections of the trail and about 2-3 inches at the higher elevations. Perfect conditions to go fast up, down and around the trails!
Today's Route: (1) Start at the Sally Barber/Barney Ford trailhead and skijor up to Sally Barber Mine; (2) Sprint down to the French Gulch/Sally Barber intersection; (3) Skijor out & up French Gulch until reaching the first of the private cabins in the gulch; (4) Turn around and sprint down to the Reiling Dredge trailhead on French Gulch Road.
Vital Stats: 6.1 miles; 58m total time; 52m skijoring time; 22 MPH top speed; 650 feet of elevation climbed. A short, fun & fast outing!
|At our turnaround point in French Gulch. Max is lined up to keep going further|
up French Gulch; he's straining backward to say, "What? Sounded like you said
'turnaround'. I must have heard you wrong - lets keep going!"
|Max adds, "Well, if you really said something as silly as 'turnaround', then|
I am going to snow-angel in the snow while you think about it!"
|Zorro says, "Yum, yum - I'll be over here chomping down on snow cones|
until you 2 decide if we are going forward or turning around!"
|At our finish point and getting our end-of-run hotdogs. Zorro|
demonstrating, "Who says I'm short? Look how loooong I can
stretch my neck to become as tall as Max!!!"
