700 and Counting.

We surpassed 700 miles of skijoring for the season this morning.
700 and counting......
Zipping along the Sally Barber Mine Trail as we were second tracks in the day's fresh snow
on this trail.

The Sally Barber Mine Trail always makes for great video footage. The trail goes on for miles and the whole event looks pretty much just like this 40 second clip. Whee, whee, wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

After sprinting up & over Sally Barber, it was laying fresh tracks out & back in French Gulch:
Fresh tracks in French Gulch. There really is a trail we are following even though you cannot
see it with the day's fresh snow. But, Max & Zorro always know how to follow a trail - snow
covered or not...

A quick 1-2 minute break at our high point in French Gulch before heading back to the French Gulch Trailhead to end the day:
"Great, fresh snow today - I'm having a GREAT time!" expresses happy Max.
"Yum, yum - tasty snowcones today!" demonstrates Zorro chomping down on a cone (note
the white ball of snow in his mouth).

As has been the case all season, trips to French Gulch always come with some sort of 'moosing event':
"Beep, beep, beep - our moose radar says they are this way!" say my intense pair pausing to
glare across the gulch. I followed their stare closely and did indeed see a big brown moose
body moving slowly in the trees across the way. Amazing how Max & Zorro can detect and
find a moose from so far away!

A fun day gliding along in fresh snow covering 10.8 miles with 950 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 81 days on the trails covering 701.4 miles with 74,000 feet of elevation climbed. 700 miles and counting....
