Kicking up Powder

It was a day of "kicking up powder" as we had new snow all to ourselves all morning!
The Siberians are only partially visible as they are kicking up powder behind them
as we fly along the trail - wheeee!

Of course a powder day must come with a powder video...

I love watching the powder flying up behind & between Max & Zorro as they
power through about 6 inches of fresh snow!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Our route found us going up/down the Sally Barber Mine trail and then up & back the main French Gulch trail. In addition to kicking up powder for most of the outing, we had many other talents to show off for the day:

Putting our shoulders and legs into hauling the human uphill.
One of our favorite talents: hunt-n-jog. "We can hunt without breaking stride as we
observe wildlife along the trails!" demonstrate the talented pair.

Today's outing covered 8 miles with 850 feet of elevation climbed, a top speed of 17 MPH, and fresh powder on the trails all day long!

2013/2014 Season to Date: 59 days on the trails covering 508.1 miles with 59,550 feet of elevation climbed.

"A great powder day!" exclaims Max at our turnaround point in French Gulch.
"Bobbing for rodents!" says Zorro dunking his head into the snow.
