A fast day with a few inches of new powder on the snowmobile trails in & around French Gulch!
It is hard to read the orange sign we are passing to the left - it says CAUTION.
Hmm, skijoring with 2 sled dogs... I've often thought of pasting a permanent "caution sign"
on  my forehead :-)
We looped around the French Gulch area by following a network of snowmobile trails. The fresh snow overnight made the trails perfect for a fast skijoring outing....

About 2 inches of fresh snow on an existing track winding through the trees.

A nice video clip of an "uphill skijoring sprint". Not many people get to experience
"skiing uphill without trying" - so much fun!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Not everything was wide & established tracks all day. Here we are in some deep snow
taking a narrow connector between 2 sections of trail.
Zorro says, "Great day! Do we have to go back???"
Tally for today's outing: 8.1 miles, 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH. Woo!
