Leisure Day

Each of the last 3 days (Fri, Sat, Sun) we have been breaking trail in 12-18 inches of fresh powder. After working that hard for 3 straight days, Max & Zorro earned today's "leisure day" on fast packed trails!
With plenty of snowfall the past week, the views were stunning today as the skies cleared and the
bright sun illuminated all the new snow!
What did the Siberians think of leisure day? "Huh, does leisure mean speed? We think it does!" suggest the sprinting pair, as the video shows below:

Siberian Leisure Time as we open up the engines and hit 21 MPH on
this fast straight away!

We did a fast "up & over" Sally Barber Mine and then a fast "out & back" in French Gulch. Great scenery the entire day...
Quite a ways back into French Gulch - a narrowing but still fast packed trail.
Pretty snow covered trees all around us.
Much further back into French Gulch - the trail is now only "1 Siberian wide" but still
a quick trail, even for single file skijoring. More of the fresh, white scenery of the day.
A zippy day on fast trails! 8.4 miles, 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.
