Flying (literally) past 1100 miles skijoring for the season!
1105.8 miles and counting...
|Catching air as we open up the throttle on a fast straightaway atop Rabbit Ears Pass.|
This is our second year in a row surpassing 1100 miles of skijoring for the season. We are dreaming of 1200 if the snowpack can hold up (or Mother Nature gives us some new snow).
|"1100 was fun, how about 2200?" asks happy Max at one of our turnaround points on the trail.|
"I hear Antarctica has a great snowpack for summer!" suggests fun Zorro.
Come along for today's fun tour up, down and around Rabbit Ears Pass...
|The top crust of snow is holding up beautifully for late April!|
Having a blast sprinting along the top crust!
The two points on top the mountain directly in front of Zorro are the ears for which Rabbit
Ears Pass gets its name.
|Nice semi-side view of my out-stretched skijor partners as I glided out to the left a bit|
to catch this nice view.
Today's route took us by the Rabbit Ears Pass Marker. Always fun to stop and inspect:
|"Hmmm, does not smell like rabbits!" declares inspector Max.|
"Hmmm, I do not see any rabbits!" states inspector Zorro.
Max provides the day's comical interlude. If the musher ever takes too long during a quick pause (equipment adjustment, gps check, etc.), he is always told about it by at least one. Today was Max's day to let me know just how slow I really am...
A day spent touring the terrain around the Rabbit Ears Pass Marker: 8.7 miles with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.
