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....
|"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!

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!
