Some of Everything

Today's outing had the full mix of trail conditions: extreme deep, fresh tracks, steep climbs, great views and sprint tracks!

We also surpassed 600 miles of skijoring for the 2012/2013 season!
600 and counting as we are still months from the end of the season!

Probably the best shot of the day.
Breaking trail in 10-12 inches of untouched powder, not an existing track as far as the
eye can see and great views. Stunning...

It is easier to show than describe the full range of trail conditions we experienced:

(1) Occasional sections of "steep" as we climbed 1200 feet during the outing.
(2) Occasional sections of "fresh tracks on established trails" as we used a few
snowmobile tracks to connect parts of our route.
(3) Occasional sections of "deepening fresh tracks" as we were on lesser used
trails during the route.
(4) Lots of sections of "breaking trail in 8-12 inches" as we spent most of the day
in private powder on generally unused trails. See the first shot above for more of
this type of terrain. Wheee!
(5) A tiny section of "fast sprint track" terrain as we used a short section of French Gulch Rd
to get onto the backcountry trails.
A fun day cycling through the full range of trail conditions! 6.3 miles, 1200 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.
