It was "running out of terrain", not "running out of time", that caused us to alter our skijor route today.
We spent our day skijoring around the Swan Valley Recreation Area in Breckenridge. One of the Siberian highlights of Swan Valley is that we frequently encounter moose tracks and occasionally moose themselves. Moose always add a little extra juice to the Siberian Engine...

Different section of trail, same result - a glancing "hunt & jog" as we see moose far
off to the left.
One of the other highlights of Swan Valley is that the most of the trails are packed by snowmobiles, leading to a fast sprint & jog all day long.

Almost 12 miles logged and the Siberians are still at full throttle!

A fun day running around Swan Valley: 11.6 miles with 1400 feet of elevation climbed. Unfortunately a GPS glitch lost our top speed - it was somewhere in the 20-24 MPH range...
