Where is Everybody

The theme for this morning's skijor outing: Where is Everybody?
Fresh, untouched snow as far as the eye can see!
Where is Everybody?

We went to skijor our favorite "easy trail" at Rabbit Ears Pass this morning. This trail is typically popular with snowmobiles as we have never found ourselves laying fresh tracks on this trail. Well, "never" ended today as we found ourselves laying fresh tracks in 1-3 inches of snow for 10 miles! Apparently people think winter is over and have put away their snow toys. Well, winter is still doing just fine on Rabbit Ears Pass. Here we go...
Zooming along the trail of untouched snow!
Where is Everybody?

Second verse, same as the first...
Not another track as far as the eye can see. Really, wow!
Where is Everybody?

Third verse, same as the first...
What beautiful terrain all to ourselves. Unbelievable!
Where is Everybody?

Fourth verse, ... almost the first...
Look, tracks to our right. Someone else knows it is still winter is what you are probably thinking.
Wrong... We did an "out & back" today and those tracks to the right are our own from the
"out direction".
Where is Everybody?

Seriously, it felt like we had the Colorado outdoors all to ourselves this morning: 10.1 miles of laying fresh tracks with 500 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH. Where is Everybody?

2014/2015 Season to Date: 127 days on the trails covering 1097.1 miles with 115,150 feet of elevation climbed.
