Happiness is skijoring 5 out of the last 6 days in mid October!
|"Hi! We are having a BLAST this October!" exclaim a very happy Max & Zorro.|
Happiness is a packed sprint track at the start of our outing:
|Zooooom we go! Powerful Siberians launching me up the packed trail at the start of our outing.|
Happiness is "out skiing" the existing tracks and breaking trail in soft, fresh powder:
|We spent about 1/2 the day on untouched terrain - laying fresh tracks and breaking trail|
for miles and miles.
Happiness is a bluebird day with fresh snow all to yourself:
|So much beauty in this picture: handsome Siberians, untouched trail, bluebird sky,|
snow covered trees, white mountains, ... - so peaceful and enjoyable!
Today's outing took us out and back in French Gulch with a little extra exploration on 3 "side trails". As you can see from the photos above, it started out a well-traveled and hard-packed trailhead. But, we quickly out-skied the existing tracks and had most of the day to ourselves on untouched snow!
A fast 7.1 miles with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH. Oh what a fun October we are having!
