|Headlamp is off - we are now "skijoring by moonlight".|
A visual progression of our early day on the trails is below:
|At the trailhead - focus the headlamp on the white butts and follow the Siberians|
up the trail.
|Out of the thick trees and into a little bit of moonlight to assist the headlamp, which|
is still centered on the Siberians as I follow their lead on skis.
|Eventually ... Sunrise! We are so far up Boreas by this point that it is a single track ski|
trail. Everyone hop in line as we continue along.
|And, then, a little further up and we are laying fresh tracks in 3-6 inches of snow!|
It did not snow overnight, but the strong winds on Boreas have created this layer of 3-6 inches
to plow through.
|The sun has finally come over the mountains to light up the day; but we were about 10 minutes|
from returning back to the trailhead when we got our first set of shadows on the trail.
Our total stats after 2 days: 22.6 miles and 2600 feet of elevation climbed.
|Top speed and distance covered for today's outing.|
