Today we uncorked the Siberian Engine and got Wild in Wilder Gulch!
|Airborne, sprinting sled dogs!|
I love getting pictures of Max & Zorro "catching air" as we fly along the trails!
We decided to try a different route than our usual path at Vail Pass today. Instead of our usual Shrine Pass/Lime Creek route, we went the opposite direction and sprinted through Wilder Gulch with an extension to the top of Ptarmigan Pass before returning the same fast route.
It was a gorgeous day and the trail conditions were a perfect Groomie Zoomie - come along for the fun:
|"New terrain, let's uncork it!" challenges airborne Zorro to Max as we started off a different|
path than we normally take at Vail Pass
|Out-stretched, sprinting Siberians from high atop the world near Ptarmigan Pass.|
|Airborne again. I think you get the theme for the day: zoom, zoom, zoom!|
We'll certainly add this route to our list of options at Vail Pass. What did Max & Zorro think:
|"Incredible day, I aprrove!" exclaims Happy Max.|
"Yes, approve, but why are we stopped?" asks 'no reason to ever stop' Zorro.
