Arrival Video

A short & fast day up & down Boreas Pass this morning.
Complete with a nice "arrival video from the front" as we end the day's run...
Nice "shot from the front" of the happy Huskies arriving at the Boreas Pass Trailhead to
end our day's run.

We upgraded Nancy to our iPad (instead of the usual iPhone) to take today's "arrival video". While the iPad does not rival the GoPro in video quality, it is still quite an improvement over the iPhone. Today's video highlight is a nice "view from the front" as we conclude the day's run - wheeee...

A nice clip of Long Max from the iPad video...
Outstretched long, long Max!
"Hey, I'm outstretched too!" says short Zorro dwarfed by long Max in the clip.

Anyway, back to the day's outing. It was a short and very fast run up & down Boreas Pass this morning. Conditions were great for a fast day and everyone got the memo that we were doing a short run so no reason to pace yourself...

Someone apparently took too long to get turned around and reset at our turnaround point of the day:
"You're KILLING me - are you ready YET?!?!?!" exclaims impatient & opinionated Max.
"Lined up and ready to go - even my tail is in aerodynamic takeoff position!" states Zorro.
"I'm coming, I'm coming, I don't need the lecture Max!" says the 'always too slow' human...

A zippy day flying up/down Boreas for 7.7 miles with 600 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 79 days on the trails covering 682.5 miles with 72,050 feet of elevation climbed.
