A perfect day for an 11 mile skijor this 24th of Mayuary!
Zooming along in a "sprint tuck" as we zip by a trail marker pole.

Take a look at the previous photo and the next two and guess what day it is...
Laying fresh tracks in the cool morning sun - zoom!
Laying fresh tracks under the cool morning clouds - wheeee!
Okay, done looking at those three shots... Now, it is the 24th of which month of the year? Looks like January or February, doesn't it. Well, it is the 24th of Mayuary! It was a perfect "winter morning" at Vail Pass today as the temperatures were in the mid to low 20s, the snowpack was endless and the terrain had a light layer of fresh snow to tickle our toes - in late May!

Most of the day looked like this short video clip - what a fun Mayuary morning skijor outing!

Of course, not everyone thinks "mid to low 20s" is cool...
"Call it what you want, I'm rolling a snow angel to cool off!" demonstrates silly Max at our
turnaround point of the day.
"Looks like January to me - I see endless, untouched snow as far as the eye can see!" states
trail inspector Zorro.

A "winter perfect" morning at Vail Pass this 24th of May: 11.2 miles with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 148 days on the trails covering 1275.8 miles with 133,400 feet of elevation climbed.
