It was 9 miles of powder on the trails today - a great Siberian workout!
|At our quick "break point" - happy Max & Zorro spinning around after my command|
to "wait". It was snowing lightly our entire outing - as evidenced by Max's happy snow
Since it is a busy weekend day, we headed to some of the lesser known trails around French Gulch to enjoy the new snow. Oh boy did we succeed, untouched trails all to ourselves all day!
|We started on French Gulch Road. So, the first mile was traversing light powder on|
a well packed road. It all changed after this first mile when we turned to head deep
into the backcountry...
|We left French Gulch Rd about 1/2 a mile ago and ascended up a steep trail to connect us|
into the backcountry. Here we are breaking trail as we crest from our steep 1/2 mile
climb and find untouched trails all to ourselves.
|Further we went - deeper it got! Breaking trail in 8+ inches of snow at this point!|
|Further and deeper. Breaking trail in 12+ inches of fresh powder as we continue up & out|
into the backcountry!
