Twas the day before Christmas, when all over the trails
Snowflakes kept falling on happy husky tails.
Snow covered huskies enjoying their trot up Boreas Pass Rd.

We woke to light snow this morning which quickly changed to heavy snow. Heavy snow might cause some people to stay indoors; but not my Siberian pals as it was "quick, let's get to the trails to enjoy the heavy falling snow!"

Pausing on our way down for the human to add additional waterproofing layers.
Snow covered huskies, snow falling all around us - what a Siberian Beautiful Day!
That is Bakers Tank in front of us on Boreas Pass Rd.
"Fresh snow, fresh tracks - wheee!" say happy Max & Zorro as they glanced back when I
announced it was time to turn around.
Zorro's favorite "turnaround activity" - chomping down on snowcones before we start the
run back to the trailhead.

We were the only people on the trails for most of the outing. As we neared the trailhead, the snow started to let up and suddenly the trails started to get populated with the expected Christmas Eve crowds.

Happy people commenting on the fun huskies as we trot on by.

We laid fresh tracks all the way up Boreas Pass Rd and then, amazingly, laid fresh tracks all the way down as our "up tracks" were already covered in snow within 5 minutes of our turnaround. What a great Christmas Eve: 9.1 miles with 950 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 17 MPH.
