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!
