A Gorgeous Bluebird Day on Rabbit Ears Pass this morning!
|Wow! Blue sky as far as the eye can see, white terrain as far as the eye can see and fast|
packed snowmobile trail as far as the eye can see!
We did our favorite "easy trail" this morning at Rabbit Ears. This particular trail has little elevation gain (or loss), it is pretty much endless flat terrain for miles and miles and miles! This is rare, of course, as most trails in the Colorado Rocky Mountains have lots of elevation gains & losses to deal with. But, not this trail - Max & Zorro get into their "endless gallop" and go forever!
|Catching air as we gallop along - wheeee!|
It was 10 miles of "endless gallop" with the exception of one interruption...
|"Wait! Moose tracks leading off the tail! Must inspect for freshness!" say the moose sniffing pair.|
After a freshness check with the noses and....
|"It was fresh! Can we to this way?" ask the moose seekers staring down the moose|
tracks leading off into the forest.
What a gorgeous day to run 9.9 miles with 500 feet of elevation climbed (that is "Colorado Flat") and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2015/2016 Season to Date: 14 days on the trail covering 116.3 miles with 11000 feet of elevation climbed.
