Topping 26 MPH as we fly along the trail on Bald Mountain (aka Baldy)!
|Sprinting Siberians above, GPS summary below. Zoom!|
We typically top 26 MPH a couple of times a season. It takes a combination of 4 things for us to top 26 MPH: (1) a packed powder or groomed trail; (2) a wide trail; (3) a long straightaway on the trail (e.g., you don't want to be going 26 MPH into a blind curve :); and (4) two fast Siberian Huskies. We always have #4; but our route on Baldy today brought us the fun combination of the first 3 criteria and zoooooom we went!
Opening up the throttle on a packed powder trail along Baldy - topping 26 MPH as we go. Wheeee!

|Trotting along the new single track connector. We have to keep speeds under control as it|
is a tight weave through the forest; but well worth it to connect some of our favorite trails into one!
After connecting Baldy to Sally Barber, it is then "zoom again" on the fast Sally Barber Trail:
