Back on Track

We spent the past week on vacation in Sedona, AZ. So, there was a lot of concern that we would return to melted & muddy trails for the start of May.

Well, problem solved... We arrived home Wednesday afternoon and Mother Nature proceeded to dump a foot of snow on our trails overnight! Woohoo - we are back on track in our quest for 1000 miles for the season!

It was breaking trail in 6-12 inches of fresh powder for most of the outing!
Whee - what a fun start to May!!!
We did a short tour up, down and along the trails near Sally Barber Mine today. Most of the day was "along the trails" as we had only 350 feet of steep inclines (& declines). If you remove elevation, then my Siberian partners really fly around the trails - regardless of 6-12 inches of fresh powder!

Sprinting shoulder-to-shoulder along a straightaway.

A fun video of Max & Zorro running, hopping and pulling the human along in the
morning's fresh powder.

It was a quick 7 mile outing today; but it brought our season total to 970 miles. We have no commitments this weekend and we have fresh snow - I foresee passing the 1000 mile point within the next few days!
