Sun and Shade

Today was a day of alternating in & out of the sun & shade as we cruised through the forest connecting Baldy Mountain to Boreas Mountain.

Happy Siberians turning around on command at our high point on Boreas Pass Rd.
One of the bluest skies I have ever seen today!

It was an absolutely beautiful January day without a single cloud in the sky leading to tranquil jogs through the forest and stunning views in the openings...

Jogging shoulder-to-shoulder on a packed trail through the shaded forest.
Note that I keep one ski "in track" and one ski "out of track" - shift weight to the in track
ski to encourage the Siberians to speed up, shift weight to the out of track ski to suggest to
the Siberians to slow down.
Transitioning from the forest onto a sunny shelf high up on Boreas.
And a final sprint to the finish to close out a fun 9 mile run.
"Hey little bro, wanna do another 9 miles?" suggests glancing Max to Zorro...

Today's outing covered 9.1 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 72 days on the trails covering 617.8 miles with 72,850 feet of elevation climbed.
