A beautiful day on the fast snowmobile trails at Rabbit Ears Pass.
The only thing that could slow Max & Zorro down was slowing to a trot to inspect the curious "snow bike" we encountered on the trail...
|"Interesting... We could pull that!" say my curious onlookers as the snow biker was all smiles|
and said, "I could use their help!" as he passed by.
Back to the real outing... We were on soft snowmobile trails all day long. Zoom, zoom zoom:
(1) It was fast uphill...
|Towing me quickly up a rise in the trail - wheeee!|
(2) It was fast in the shade...
|Flying Siberians propelling me along the trail!|
(3) It was fast in the sun...
|Temperatures in the teens & soft packed trails means ZOOM!|
A picture perfect day everywhere we went today!
|"I approve!" states happy Max looking back at me when I stopped us briefly.|
"Yep, great day - let's go!" says 'always ready' Zorro.
It was a short run (timewise) today; but a great day to cover some distance quickly: 9 miles with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.
2014/2015 Season to Date: 55 days on the trails covering 461.2 miles with 49,500 feet of elevation climbed.
