Merry Christmas

"Merry Christmas Everyone!" from my favorite little helpers Max & Zorro!
Musher in his festive Santa Hat while the jolly helpers are very focused on receiving their
"end of run" hotdog treats!

We have officially started a new skijoring tradition: getting out early on Christmas Day and doing an early morning fun run before all the tourists wake up. Last year was our first such "Early Morning Christmas Fun Run" and doing it again this year has now established it as a tradition :-)

"Hey little bro - let's open the throttle and take this human for a real ride!" whispers Max
to Zorro as we crest over our high point of the day at Sally Barber Mine.

"Yeah - let's take him for a 20+ MPH ride!" demonstrate the Siberians.
This is the same section of trail that produced one of our rare oops moments just
2 days ago. This video is how we typically perform on the trails :-)

A fun, fast & short early morning Christmas sprint up & over Sally Barber Mine with a side extension up & down French Gulch before trotting along French Gulch Rd to the BnB trailhead. 6.5 miles with 500 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.
