Boreas Views

Yesterday's outing featured beautiful views from atop Vail Pass; today we had nice views from high up on Boreas Pass.
Nice shot of snow covered peaks as we jog along Boreas Pass Rd.

We took one of our favorite backcountry trails that connects Baldy Mountain to Boreas Mountain. This is a seldom used trail, so it is typically single file skijoring as we traverse this narrow connector trail:
Max running in lead on the trail only 1 Siberian wide.
The connector trail goes on for many miles, so we always alternate as Zorro is now
running lead on the single file trail.

You know it is a warm day when Zorro rolls a snow angel to cool off! Max, of course, rolls snow angels at all temperatures :)
Transitioning out of the narrow "forest trail" and onto Boreas Pass at Bakers Tank.
Nice views for me to take in as the Siberians roll snow angels to cool off before beginning
our jog on fast packed Boreas Pass Rd.

Fun day - happy boys!
"Hi! That was fun & narrow in the forest and now we are ready to open it up on wide
Boreas Pass Rd!" say my happy pair.

A gentle jog up Baldy, across Baldy to Boreas and down Boreas Pass Rd covering 7.6 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 17 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 94 days on the trails covering 802.5 miles with 93,400 feet of elevation climbed. 800 miles and counting - woo hoo!
