Turkey Trot

A Siberian Husky take on doing a Thanksgiving Turkey Trot:
Flying Siberians as we top 24 MPH on this morning's Skijor Turkey Trot.

Here we go with Max & Zorro doing their idea of a Turkey Trot as we zip along the fast packed Sally Barber Trail, topping 24 MPH along the way - wheeee!

Spreading good cheer as we fly along the trails...
"Hi, Happy Thanksgiving, Bye!" says out-stretched Zorro.
"Made you smile! Happy Thanksgiving!" states fun Max.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us...
"Hope you have a great day! I sure did!" exclaims happy Max.
"I can almost taste the turkey already!" says cute Zorro.

A fun & fast Thanksgiving Turkey Trot with skijoring partners: 8.4 miles traveled with 950 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 21 days on the trails covering 172.5 miles with 17850 feet of elevation climbed.


  1. How do you find trails to use? I know not all x-country trails allow dogs.

    1. We rarely used "groomed XC trails" (e.g., nordic centers) as you are right that most such trails do not allow dogs. Our primary trails are backcountry, national forest trails that are open to everybody. Look for snowmobile trails too, these are often national forest and open to everyone (just avoid weekends when they get really busy with snowmobiles).
