Still Going

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!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

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.
