Fresh Fun

A great day of fresh & fluffy snow on the trails around Sally Barber Mine and French Gulch. 9 miles of laying tracks in the freshies! Woo!

Far back in French Gulch and breaking trail in 6-10 inches of fresh snow!
Close to the trailheads found us laying fresh tracks in 2-4 inches of new snow. Far back on the trails found us breaking trail in 6-10 inches. Even better - the snow was "mid winter fluffy" even though we are in late March. What Siberian Fun!

More trail breaking as we progressed further and further back into French Gulch.
If you "break trail" on the out direction, you get to sprint in your own tracks on the
return direction! Wheeeee!!
We are in a really nice stretch of "March Snow" with the forecast for it to continue for the next 3-4 days - what a treat! Today's stats: 9.2 miles, 1250 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

  1. Wonderful story, reckoned we could combine a number of unrelated information. Keep it up.
