Another powder day on the trail in May - wow!
|Beautiful airborne Siberians launching themselves (and me) over a rise in the trail!|
We spent the majority of the day laying fresh tracks in 3-5 inches of fresh powder. We did encounter the occasional runoff patches interfering with the trail; but nothing we could not carefully navigate around. A perfect May day!
Today's video highlight is a fun clip of Max & Zorro transitioning from a gentle trot to a "pedal to the metal" sprint - zoom!

Max & Zorro have different opinions of "runoff patches" and how to deal with such terrain...
|"Boing - over the shallow runoff patch I go!" says funny, water averse Zorro.|
If the water is not frozen, he wants nothing to do with it as he can hurdle and long jump
just about any water obstacle
|"What is the big deal? Just a little cool water on the toes..." suggests Max who has no|
problem just walking through shallow water obstacles. It is night & day between Max & Zorro
in how they view shallow water obstacles!
A few water obstacles versus tons of powder fun - how was the day?
|"We'll take any day like this in May!" exclaim the happy pair at our midpoint turnaround.|
