Fresh Tracks Day

A peaceful Friday laying fresh tracks all over the trails today..
Cruising down the Sally Barber Mine Trail with fresh snow on the packed trail
all to ourselves!
Nice shot of the Siberians putting all their strength into the harnesses as they tow me
up to Sally Barber Mine.

This short video captures the theme of the day: laying fresh tracks as we jog along the peaceful trails.
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

We did an up & over Sally Barber Mine to then connect onto the main French Gulch Trail. Two trails, same result - laying fresh tracks all day long! When you are laying fresh tracks at the beginning of French Gulch, then you know you are going to have fresh snow getting deeper & deeper all to yourself.
Far back (& up) in French Gulch with the day's fresh snow all to ourselves!

No trip to French Gulch is complete without a "moose inspection" pause from Max & Zorro.
Taking a quick break off the trail as the Siberians survey the meadow for moose (we have
seen them from this location before) while I survey the nice, panoramic scenery all around us.

A "fresh tracks day" covering 8.1 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 95 days on the trails covering 810.6 miles with 94,300 feet of elevation climbed.
