Dual Angels

Rolling Dual Snow Angels after completing a steep climb up & out of Indiana Creek.
Left: Max rolling a snow angel to cool off while Zorro dunks his head in the snow.
Right: Zorro agrees, "Good idea, think I'll roll an angel too!"
We passed 400 miles for our 2012/2013 skijoring season today (402.8 miles to be exact)! We used 3 parts of the Indiana Creek trail system to weave together a fun 9.1 mile outing:

(1) Cruising out & up the well-traveled lower section of Indiana Creek.
(2) Climbing up & over the steep connector from Indiana Creek to Pennsylvania Creek (and then returning the same route).
(3) Jogging out & back the lower trail hugging Indiana Creek deep into the backcountry.
(4) Sprinting back down the first leg to return to the Indiana Creek trailhead.

Cruising along the lower section of Indiana Creek - a hard packed fast trail with a trace
to inch of new snow cover.
Beginning the steep connector out of Indiana Creek to Pennsylvania Creek. This is not a
widely used trail (due to the steepness), so we were laying fresh tracks in 2-5 inches of snow
the entire route!
Back along the trail that hugs Indiana Creek as you go far into the backcountry.
A fun network of trails with a couple of really steep grades to add to the workout: 9.1 miles, 1600 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
