We were ecstatic to find excellent conditions on the trails at Swan Valley today!

Max in a full sprint with his front feet barely touching the ground.
Zorro in an airborne stretch as he flies along the trail!
We were not sure how we would find the state of the trails given recent rain and warm temperatures. To our pleasant surprise, we found the South Fork Trail (and its adjacent side trails) in perfect skijoring condition this morning - woo hoo! Some of the more sun exposed trails at Swan Valley, such as the Middle Fork Trail, are no longer usable; but South Fork was about as perfect as a late April trail could be!!!
|Happily jogging along a perfect late April terrain!|
We scaled up the South Fork Trail before turning around and enjoying an endless ride all the way back to the trailhead. Today's video highlight is a 45 second glimpse into the endless jog & sprint along South Fork.

What did Max & Zorro think of the great conditions for the day?
|"Perfect, we are having a BLAST!" say the happy, happy pair at our quick midpoint break.|
