Cruising Day

Sunday night brought just enough fresh snow near home for us to hit the local trails first thing Monday morning.

"Ok, if we are turning around, let me cool off first." says snow angel rolling Max.
"I see absolutely NO reason to turn around!" exclaims Zorro surveying the trail to
continue in front of us.
We did one of our frequent "close to home" routes today: skijoring up & down Sally Barber Mine and then out & back in French Gulch.

Peacefully cruising along the trails in French Gulch.
Standing on the skis, letting the Siberians propel me along - whee!

The trails we skijored today are some of the more popular trails in Breckenridge. So, we were pleasantly surprised to be laying fresh tracks almost the entire day! Woo, first on the trails after fresh snow is always soooo much fun!

First on the trail laying fresh tracks the entire route up to Sally Barber Mine!
Second on the trail coming down from Sally Barber Mine with one set of existing tracks.
The Siberians prefer laying fresh tracks, so they are sprinting down the untouched snow
to the left.
First on the trail, again, in French Gulch as we lay fresh tracks this entire leg of the outing!
A very peaceful and serene day laying fresh tracks over most of the terrain - 8.2 miles with 950 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.
