A ton of fun skijoring the perfect conditions in upper French Gulch this morning!
|Sprinting in a snowmobile track that went on for miles - wheeee!|
The upper section of French Gulch is in perfect condition for a great skijoring day. The four things we encountered on the trail today: a snowmobile track for fast sprinting (see above), a narrow ski track for tight shoulder-to-shoulder jogging, a span of no tracks for breaking trail and a fun moose sighting from afar. What a perfect day in the upper gulch...
|Barely wide enough to jog should-to-shoulder once the snowmobile track eventually ended.|
|Breaking trail far back in the gulch once all existing ski tracks ended.|
Eventually we had to turn around...
|"Okay - it has been fun all day, let's retrace our steps!" exclaims happy Zorro.|
"Roger - retrace our tracks. Besides, the moose was back this way!" states 'ready to go' Max.
