Ah - Winter

Today is the last day of Winter and we had fresh snow all over the trails all to ourselves! Ah, what a great last day of Winter...

Laying fresh tracks in a couple inches of new snow at the lower elevations of
our route.
It was one of those days where I could try and describe the perfect conditions and how much fun we had; but pictures will do a better job:

Skijoring single file along a narrow trail with "snow walls" taller than tall Max!
Climbing over a large drift in the trail. It was windy last night & this morning - leading to lots
of drifts like this to plow through.
Far back in Indiana Creek and it was "deep trail breaking" fun. Zorro & I riding behind
tall Max and his trail breaking skills.
Do you see a trail? I didn't think so... We carved a trail not more than 15 minutes ago through
this meadow; but strong winds blowing all day and the trail is completely re-covered in
snow only 10-15 minutes later!
No day is complete without our usual "cool off antics" at our turnaround point.
Snow angels from Max and chomping down on snow cones from Zorro.
A fun little romp through the fresh snow in Indiana Creek today: 7.2 miles, 1000 feet of elevation climbed, a top speed of 18 MPH and lots of soft, fresh snow for the last day of Winter.


  1. Your last day of Winter looks really fun.
    Climbing the large drift in the trail is definitely my favorite part there.


  2. March always brings the best snows.
