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!
