Touring Rabbit Ears

An incredible bluebird day skijoring Rabbit Ears Pass on Tuesday morning.
Zoom, zoom, zoom we go around the open meadows at Rabbit Ears Pass.

Tuesday was our "buffer day" in case the conditions prevented us from passing 1300 miles on Monday. Well, Monday was a success as we cruised on by 1300 miles, so Tuesday morning was a short & light fun run around the landmarks of Rabbit Ears Pass.

Here we go in the search for the rabbit ears....
At the Forest Service's "Rabbit Ears Pass Landmark" marking geographic center point of the pass.
"What's the plan for the day? I am ready for fun!" exclaims happy little Zorro.
"Do they keep the rabbit ears in the landmark?" asks Max inspecting the marker for rabbits.
"Ready, let's go find the rabbits!" says attentive Max.
"Wait, you mean the rabbits might be IN the landmark?" states inquisitive, inspecting Zorro.
And here are the "ears"... The rock formation circled above are the ears, visible from all
around Rabbit Ears Pass, for which the pass is named.

Today's video highlight is zooming around the snow covered meadows as we search for rabbits :-)

Occasionally one of Max or Zorro drifts off the "skijoring pace" as you see Zorro doing in the beginning of the video. It only takes a quick "come on Zorro" from me for him kick it back into gear and launch himself in sync with his brother as they take off in unison - zoom!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Well, we did not find any rabbits, despite looking everywhere; but....
"We still had a GREAT time!" say the happy brothers thoroughly enjoying a
wonderful May 20th still on snow!

A short & fun "play day" around the Rabbit Ears landmarks covering 6.7 miles with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 151 days on the trails covering 1307.2 miles with 149,100 feet of elevation climbed.
