Fun run connecting Baldy Mountain to Boreas Mountain this morning.
|Cruising along the fast packed Boreas Pass as Breckenridge Ski Resort starts to come into|
view across the valley.
Today's entertainment was "Look out for that...." .... "Deer Leg!"
We were trotting along the trail when I saw what appeared to be a large branch laying across the trail. "No problem," I thought, "Max & Zorro could care less about sticks, we'll just cruise on by."
|The arrow above points out what appeared to be a large branch or stick across the trail.|
So I thought....
As we got closer my skijor partners dipped their noses up & down and side to side as we got near the supposed branch. "What has got the attention of their noses?" I wondered until both of them dipped onto the "branch" instead of trotting by (as would be normal).
|"Whoa! That's not a branch! It's a DEER LEG!" I suddenly realized!|
"Of course, we wouldn't slow and dip for a stupid branch!" state Max & Zorro.
Zorro lost interest quickly; but not Max as I was not prepared for him to stop in front of me! Look out for that DEER LEG!
|"Picked clean of meat - boring... Moving on!" states Zorro.|
"No, no, this end still has meat! Yum, yum!" exclaims Max.
Done with the deer leg, back to cruising Boreas Pass as we encounter a group hiking up to the overnight huts on the top of Boreas.
|"Hi! Made you smile!" say Max & Zorro flirting with the smiling crowd as we trot by.|
