Let it Snow

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! :)

2015/2016 Season to Date: 33 days on the trails covering 276.0 miles with 28650 feet of elevation climbed.
