Peaceful Monday

Fresh Snow Mondays are always so peaceful on the trails...

Trotting along the trails near Sally Barber Mine.
Nobody but us huskies out to enjoy the day's fresh snow!

Monday means the weekend's busy crowds are gone and this tends to be the quietest day of the week on the trails. Add a little overnight fresh snow and "Fresh Snow Mondays" are some of the most peaceful outings we have. Just me and my pals out enjoying the backcountry & snow all to ourselves - what a treat!

Another pretty shot of our fresh snow trot on what is a very busy "weekend trail".
So peaceful to glide along the trail through the trees.

Here is a fun little video to go along with the theme of the day - laying fresh tracks as we peacefully jog amongst the snow covered trees.
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

We were the first tracks on every trail we chose today! The only tracks we encountered during the whole outing was our own tracks as we went "out & back" on the French Gulch Trail for part of the day.
Max & Zorro putting some "serious shoulders" into their harnesses as they launch me along
French Gulch. The tracks you see in front of us are our own tracks.

Transitioning from the Sally Barber Trail to the French Gulch Trail required climbing up & down a large snow wall. My Siberian pals quickly hopped over the wall and then had to wait for the slow human to climb over on skis.
"Hi! Aren't I a good boy - I am waiting for you!" says extremely happy Max.
"If you do not hurry, I am going to pull you off that snow wall!" states impatient and
ready-to-go Zorro. 

Such a peaceful day laying fresh tracks over 8.7 miles with 750 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 88 days on the trails covering 749 miles with 86,850 feet of elevation climbed.
