Birthday Views

Today is my birthday and to celebrate Max & Zorro decided to tow me from Baldy Mountain to Boreas Mountain in order to get some incredible views.

"Well, if you'd EVER get your equipment organized we would tow you to some views!" says
happy Max. "Oh COME ON!" expresses impatient Zorro.

There were lots of candidates for "best views" of the day. I settled on the following 2 as the top choices...

(1) Cruising along Boreas Pass Rd as Breckenridge Ski Resort comes into full view on the opposite mountain.
Moving along at a nice 15 to 16 MPH gallop and taking in the full view of
Breckenridge Ski Resort.

(2) The view of "airborne Siberian sprinters" along Boreas Pass Rd.
Topping out around 20 MPH. Watching "20 MPH Siberians" is an incredible view
all to itself!

A tough choice on "best view", although I think I am going to go with the galloping Siberians and the unfolding views of Breckenridge Ski Resort - watch for yourself:

Cruising along Boreas Pass Rd. About 1/3 of the way into the video, the ski resort starts
to come into view. About 1/2 way in, you get a beautiful unfolding view of the entire
ski resort (click the Settings button and switch to HD for the best views :)

What a great birthday present of views, views and more views as we skijored up Baldy Mountain, across Baldy to Boreas and down Boreas Pass Rd - 9 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
