Fresh Tracks Day

It was a day of laying fresh tracks in 2-5 inches of snow all day - such skijoring fun!
We just dropped out of the thick forest and into a wide open meadow with fresh snow all to
We took to some of the lesser used trails surrounding French Gulch with the hopes of having the day's fresh snow all to ourselves. Boy, did we score - our entire outing was spent laying fresh tracks as we cruised through 2-5 inches of untouched powder the whole day. What a beautiful fresh tracks day!

I love the scenery in this video clip. Just Max, Zorro & I trotting through the forest
and enjoying the fresh snow all to ourselves!

And a few more fun shots from the outing...
Nearing our "high point" of the day - having a great time climbing up the trail!
"Did you say 'almost done' and then 'wait'? Oh boy!" declare Max & Zorro.
'Almost done' is the command I give when we are nearing our midpoint break or the end of
the run for the day. It means "cut loose, we are taking a hotdog break soon."
Both of them know the next 'wait' after an 'almost done' is hotdog time as both are spinning
around in anticipation after my call to 'wait'.
Not all 'waits' work this well, but the 'wait' after an 'almost done' is always a success :-)
A great powder day with some good elevations to climb up and sprint down: 7.2 miles, 1500 feet of elevation climbed, a top speed of 20 MPH and laying fresh tracks all day!
