We Approve

Happy Max & Zorro clearly approve of the multi-day, mid-April snowstorm we are in the midst of!
Happy Zorro looking back as I called them off the trail to take our quick midpoint break.
Happy Max giving approval to restart the fun after our break.
Today's outing took us to the snowmobile trails of Swan Valley Rd. But, all the snowmobile tour companies are closed for the season; so we were laying fresh tracks on the trails all day. How silly - look at all the snow we have:

Cruising along the South Fork trail as we hit 19 MPH along this stretch.
Look closely and you can see snowflakes starting to fall upon us - whee!

We skijored both the Middle Fork and South Fork trails of Swan Valley Rd - from "fresh tracks" to "breaking trail" all day:

Most of the day looked like this - laying fresh tracks in 2-4 inches of new snow.
But, some of the day had us breaking trail in 6-8 inches of snow.
And, we even had one extended downhill stretch of breaking trail - whee!
A fabulous mid-April day covering 10.8 miles & 1300 feet of elevation climbed with a top speed of 19 MPH and fresh snow everywhere!
