The plan was a success as we stayed sheltered from the wind; yet the constant up/down lead to us climbing over 1200 feet in our relatively short 6.6 mile outing. Roughly 3.3 miles of "ups" and 3.3 miles of "downs" with some steep sections requiring a lot of driving the skis into the snow to keep under control and going safe speeds! Fun, fun day!
Our final stretch returning to the Baldy Mountain trailhead.
Vital Stats: 6.6 miles; 84m total time; 76m skijoring time; 20 MPH top speed; 1200 feet of elevation climbed.

Puzzle: Find the Zorro in this picture...
Hint: Look for his antennas (ears).

angel, I was too slow with the camera to catch it).
