Fast & Pretty Day

It was a "fast day" with lots of pretty views skijoring around the Vail Pass Recreation Area.

Nice views of the snow covered Rocky Mountains all day.
It even looks like Max & Zorro are taking in the scenery :-)
We did a 13 mile tour on the Vail Pass snowmobile trails today. The trails were packed but not icy - just a perfect day to go fast up, down & across the terrain...

Having a great time galloping along the top of Shrine Pass - whee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

(1) It was fast uphill:
Sprinting up the fast trail on Lime Creek Rd.
(2) It was fast downhill (as always):
Hitting some nice speeds along a down section of Lime Creek Rd.
(3) It was fast along the straightaways:
Sprinting across a flat section of Shrine Pass Rd.

Basically, it was a fast day with tons of great views of the Rockies... Our outing totaled 13.1 miles with 1650 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH. A beautiful outing...
