Where Did They Go

Today found us using parts of the same trail as yesterday; and the "shared section" is where we spotted the family of 3 moose...
"Has anyone seen our moose? They were in this meadow yesterday! Where
did they go?" ask curious Max & Zorro intensely surveying the moose meadow.

We were "first tracks" on the trail in French Gulch and "second tracks" on the trail by Sally Barber Mine.
Laying fresh tracks up the main French Gulch trail.
Following the existing track near Sally Barber Mine. Darn, someone beat us to "first tracks"
on this trail!

Today's video features Zorro trying his hardest to find a way to keep up with sprinting Max. The video starts with a fun corner around some trees, up a little incline and then into a sprint straightaway. The only problem is the straightaway has a single "set track" and a couple of inches of powder out of the track and Max has grabbed the set track to himself. Watch determined little Zorro bouncing in & out of the track versus powder, trying to find a way to fit in the sprint track with his brother...

It is a busy weekend and French Gulch & Sally Barber are popular trails; so we got up early and did a fast short run to get on & off the trails before the crowds... 7.1 miles with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 65 days on the trails covering 556.3 miles with 65,350 feet of elevation climbed.
