We are happy to report that most of today's skijor outing looked like the following photo - skijoring in a whiteout - woohoo!
Are we going up? Are we going down? Do you know where the trail is?
Don't worry, just trust your sled dogs and they take you up, down and around the
terrain through a whiteout!

Even when we got into narrower sections of trail with trees all around, we are happy to report that the GoPro was blurred by snow falling water spots almost the entire outing:
Kicking up powder through an aspen grove as the GoPro is constantly blurred
by snow fall!

We are also happy to report that we had a moose sighting from the trail today (and the human is happy to report the moose was far away in the trees):
"Beep, beep - our noses say this way! And, BINGO - we see a moose moving in the trees!"
say the moose seeking pair pausing to watch the large brown body move away from us
in the trees.

Furthermore, we are happy to report that we found something to do while the slow human stopped to adjust his equipment:
I was looking down to adjust equipment when I fell a tug forward and looked up to find
my pals doing this... "Well, if you are going to stop, then we are going to roll snow angels!"
declare my silly partners.

Finally, we are happy to report that we had a great day kicking up powder in fresh snow in April - wheeee!
"What an April Treat to have fresh snow under our feet!" say the extremely happy
pair looking back when I called out time to turnaround and head back.

Unfortunately, I am unhappy to report that YouTube is broken today as we had a fun video of us kicking up powder in the day's whiteout (the video has been at "0% processed, please wait" for 25 minutes - abort).

A great day laying fresh tracks and breaking trail in April: 7.7 miles with 1150 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 17 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 119 days on the trails covering 1030.2 miles with 108950 feet of elevation climbed.
