Snowfall Fun

An enjoyable day on the trails with a steady snowfall adding to the fun.

"Great run! I loved it!" says happy Max at the end of our outing.
"I had a blast too!" states happy little Zorro circling back to express his approval of the outing.

The only drawback to a steady snow is that it is hard to keep the GoPro camera case clear of water spots. So there was not much "spot free" footage from the day...

Cruising up French Gulch.
Look closely and you can see some of the snowflakes against the trees in the background.
The "white all around us" makes it hard to see how hard it is really snowing.
The "white covered backs" on the Siberians, though, gives you a good feel for how
hard it was snowing...

The following video clip shows how hard it was to keep the camera clear. I just wiped the lens clear before this video and after about 30 seconds it is covered with water spots again.

The snow finally let up a little bit for the last mile of our outing. Finally, a clear shot:
Almost 9 miles later and we still have my airborne, sprinting pair towing me along the trail - wheeee!

A fun day of constant snowfall covering 9 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 105 days on the trails covering 901.4 miles with 104,900 feet of elevation climbed. Woo Hoo - 900 miles and counting!!!
