A beautiful "let it snow" skijoring morning as we had light to heavy snowfall coming down upon us the entire outing!
|Trotting by Sally Barber Mine. You can see the active snow as all the white speckles on the mine.|
Snow covered Max, snow covered Zorro, snow covered mine, snow covered trail - PERFECT!
We are happy to report that most of the day's video footage was blurred by heavy snowfall. But, we did have a few short stretches where the snow was light enough to capture the fun. Watch as Max & Zorro are kicking up powder in the morning's fresh 6+ inches - wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
Most of the day, though, was snow blurred video...
|Partially blurred footage as we break trail in 8+ inches in French Gulch. Look closely and you|
can see the "snow troughs" Max & Zorro are carving behind them.
Did I say "French Gulch" in that last caption. Well, we all know what that means this season - MOOSE! While we did not see any, a clear "scent of moose" pulled my partners to stare intensely into a cluster of trees.
|"Sniff, sniff - we KNOW you are there - come out, come out wherever you are!" declare|
Max & Zorro with extreme moose intensity. Nice flakes falling all around us too!
A fun morning run in the fresh & active falling snow: 8.9 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a modest top speed of 16 MPH (you try running faster than that in snow almost as deep as your legs! :)
