Another day, another pair of Happy Husky Faces!
|"Yes - we are having a GREAT day!" exclaim super happy Max & Zorro.|
We experienced the full range of conditions skijoring out & back in Indiana Creek today. From fresh tracks to breaking trail and from set tracks to alone deep in the backcountry, it was a fun day with a little of everything...
|Laying fresh tracks in 1-2 inches of snow atop set tracks near the trailhead.|
|We quickly out-skied the "set tracks" and found ourselves laying fresh tracks on|
the untouched trail at lower elevations.
|We quickly ascended out of the lower elevations and found ourselves breaking trail|
in a vast meadow of untouched snow.
|A little more elevation, a lot more depth and it became "single file trail breaking" as|
Max & Zorro alternated running lead in 8-12 inches of snow.
|The nice thing about breaking trail on the way up is that you get to trot in your snow|
trough on the way down!
As the pictures show - a little of everything in Indiana Creek today covering 8.4 miles with 900 feet of elevation gain.
