Another 9 miles skijoring in May today - all "May miles" are a welcome event!
|Cruising along the dirty and mixed ice & slush trail.|
|Finding a stretch of "good conditions" as Zorro flies along the hard pack while Max|
sprints up the snowmobile track - zoooom!
Today's video highlights the conditions of the trails the majority of the day: bumpy trail of dirty snow and a mix of ice & slush with exposed ground on the shoulders. But, it is skijoring in May - we'll take it!

If you thought the trail conditions in the video were sketchy, then do not look below :-)
|"Why are you stopped? So there's a little breakup - let's go!" say my partners who had much less|
trouble navigating this river breakup on the trail than me.
All smiles as "still going in May" overrides less than perfect trail conditions...
|"We are having a GREAT time - it is snow so we go!" say the happy pair looking|
back at me at our quick break point of the day.
Always nice to be able to skijor 8.8 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH in May!
2013/2014 Season to Date: 142 days on the trails covering 1234.0 miles with 141,600 feet of elevation climbed.
