It is May 10th and we are still going!
|"Is this the year we get snow all Summer?" ask a happy Max & Zorro!|
We enjoyed a great range of conditions along the trails of the South Fork of Swan Valley - as shown below:
|There was a set snowmobile track as we started up from the trailhead.|
|But, within about 2 miles, the set track was gone and we were laying fresh tracks in|
3-6 inches of snow for the rest of the route up! Fun!
|Our route took us on a loop (instead of an out & back on the same trail). So, it was laying|
fresh tracks most of the way down as well! Whee!
|Eventually, we were back on a snowmobile track as we approached the trailhead to finish.|
|Synchronized Snow Angels. You cannot get much more synchronized than this!|
Tally for the day: 8.8 miles with 850 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 16 MPH (the snow was heavy, wet & sticky, so it was hard for us get going really fast). What a fun May 10th!
