Sunday Stroll

The intent of today's skijor outing was to take a moderate stroll on the trails in & around Indiana Creek. Try explaining "stroll" to two Siberian Huskies....
"This is a 'stroll' - right? Breaking trail in chest deep powder!" suggest Max & Zorro.
"Ok, if breaking trail wasn't a stroll - how about this? Weaving (quickly) through a narrow
trail in the trees. This is a stroll, right?" offer Max & Zorro.

"Ok, we got it! This is a stroll - hitting 22 MPH! Yea, this MUST be a stroll!" declare
speedy Max & Zorro.

Sorry guys, none of your suggestions is a "stroll" - here is a stroll:
Trotting gently across the snow covered meadow on a packed trail covered with about an inch
of wind blown snow - now this is a Sunday Stroll!
"BORING!" declare Max & Zorro, "We like our 3 examples of a Siberian Stroll above!"
I was clearly outvoted, 2 to 1, on the suggestion to take a Sunday Stroll in & around Indiana Creek... The stroll became 7.1 miles, 1100 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH - Siberian Stroll :-)
