Today is Max's birthday and we had a real Siberian Skijor Birthday Bash to celebrate.
The photos in today's blog list everything Max got for his birthday - it was a great day!
|"Wow - what a birthday! I am not sure what was my favorite gift: moose, dog teams, 26 mph,|
11 miles, snow angels - I loved them ALL!" exclaims happy 6 year old Max.
|26 MPH - our top speed of the season!|
10.6 miles - a great time touring packed trails!
"Both of these presents were GREAT!"
|Look to the upper left of this photo - that is a MOOSE in the snow field just off the trail.|
This was by far the BIGGEST moose I have ever seen - it was MASSIVE!
"A moose for my birthday - wow! But why didn't the silly human let us chase it?" :-)
|Look closely at the top left of the photo - you see an "8 pack" of Siberians from Good Times|
pulling a sled for the tourists. We were skijoring on the trails also used by Good Times today, we
had numerous encounters with their dog sled tours.
"I could pull that sled!" says an observant Max.
|Sure, Max rolls a snow angel on 50-75% of our outings. But, would a birthday be complete|
without a roll in the snow - clearly not!
|Airborne, out-stretched, sprinting Siberians. I think 26 MPH was probably Max's favorite|
present. Had I let him chase that moose, then we would certainly have had a different
favorite present :-)
Tally for the day: 10.6 miles, 1400 feet of elevation climbed, a top speed of 26 MPH and numerous "birthday gifts" for Max!
