Just Enough

We got "just enough" new snow overnight to make the steep trails on Baldy Mountain safe to ski down again! So, Max, Zorro & I hit the backcountry trails to skijor up, down and around Baldy.
Shoulder to shoulder in a nice uphill sprint. There is nothing quite like "skiing uphill without
even trying" - Siberian Power at its best :-)
Even though it was cloudy and overcast all day, the temperatures were around 25 to 30 degrees. That is hot to a husky - just ask Max:
"So hot, so hot - gotta roll a snow angel to cool off!" exclaims Max.
As part of our tour around Baldy, we took the lesser used trail out & back to the True Romance Mine - this is always a fun and somewhat narrow trail:
Cruising through the trees on the way to the True Romance Mine.
Taking a quick break at True Romance. Well, ok, I guess I was taking a break. Zorro, on the
other hand, decided to do some mining by digging in the snow all around the mine.
Unfortunately, he did not strike gold :-)
A fun little day cruising around Baldy: 7.2 miles, 1300 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 16 MPH.
