Good Times

Flying along the trails at Swan Valley this morning - wheeee!

Today was closing day for dog sled tours at Good Times Adventures. So, of course, that meant we had to hit the trails at Swan Valley with them to get in one last day of "running with dog sled teams" this season. It was a huge success - we encountered three different '6 dog teams' and ran the trails with them. So much fun!!!
Sprinting Max & Zorro as you can see a musher on the sled of one of the teams coming
into view in front of us (the blob in the center of the trail in front of us).
Okay, not the best photo in the world as I am sliding out to the right to make sure Max & Zorro
go "on by" correctly. But, still fun to see the team paused on the side of the trail as we do a
perfect "on by"...

Of course today's video highlight is playing "chase & catch" with the sled teams. In this video we have given a team a huge head start and the fly along the trail to chase and catch them. Watch closely as the dog sled team starts to come into view near the end of the video. Yes, Max & Zorro are gaining ground on a 6 dog team - wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

A lot of fun sprints on the trail; but it was a little on the warm side too. So, you know what that means:
"Aaaahhh, rolling a snow angel to cool off!" exclaims Max.
"Good idea bro - rub a dub dub!" demonstrates snow rolling Zorro.

Always sad when Good Times stops their sled tours for the season. But, at least we got one last day to run the trails with them!
"So much fun! Why would you stop tours when the ground is still white!" declare Max & Zorro
thoroughly enjoying the day and wishing they could run with Good Times another month!

Fun with Good Times teams covering 9.1 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 112 days on the trails covering 970.5 miles with 102,800 feet of elevation climbed.
