Snowed Out

Steady snow falling all around us this morning on Rabbit Ears Pass.
Out-stretched sled dogs hauling me along the trail - wheeee!

As clear as the previous photo looks, we are happy to report that the majority of the footage from today's outing looked like the following photo... Snow & water spots blurring just about all of the camera. In the following photo you get a slight glimpse of running Max & Zorro in between the snow & water spots; but most of the footage had one or both blurred out. No complaints here, this heavy snowstorm is just what we need to set all of our trails for the remainder of the winter - yay!
Blurred to the right, blurred to the left and a quick glimpse of Max & Zorro in between the blur.

Whenever I noticed the GoPro completely covered by snow & water spots, I would give it a quick wipe and then I would get some clear footage for the next 1-2 minutes. Here's a fun clip right after I cleared the lens. Watch funny Zorro in his patented "hunt and jog" in the beginning of the clip before giving up on hunting and deciding to put the pedal to the metal with Max.

Here is a great "visual effect" of a water & snow blurred camera. How many sled dogs do you see in the photo? I see a red Max tail to the left and 2 (TWO!!!) Zorro bodies to the right. Omigod, did we pickup another Zorro on the trail today? Skijoring with three?
The water blurred camera has given us "Zorro Double Vision" as it has created this neat
illusion that looks like we have 2 Zorros!

A day happily "blurred by snow" covering 8.1 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 15 days on the trails covering 124.4 miles with 11900 feet of elevation climbed.
