Nice Views

A serene bluebird day today with beautiful views on the homestretch down Boreas Pass Rd.
Beautiful views for the human - packed & wide sprint track for the Siberians.
Fun for everyone! :-)
We hit the trails today for a quick outing from the Baldy Mountain winter trailhead, up & connecting onto Boreas Mountain and then down Boreas Pass Rd to the Boreas winter trailhead. A nice "trotting video with views" on the way down:

Cruising down Boreas in a nice "skijor trot". Notice the human's shadow: no skiing effort
required from me, just ride the runners and enjoy the views- Siberian Powered. You can see
Breckenridge Ski Resort coming into view (straight ahead and one mountain over).
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
Note: mouse over the video and click the settings icon () and change the quality to
720pHD for great HD quality video playback - youtube does not allow me to offer this
quality as the default setting even though that is what looks best!

We progressed through "narrow packed trails" to "open packed trails" to "wide packed trails" as we connected Baldy to Boreas. Packed equals "fast all the way today! Woo!"
Cruising along the packed & narrow connector from Baldy to Boreas. A need to keep a
little under control since the trail is so tight.
Dropping onto Boreas Pass Rd (high up on Boreas).  It is an open & packed trail now, no
need for caution - uncork the Siberians and off we go!
Tally for the day: 7.1 miles, 750 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH. A fast, quick & fun day!
