Look Out

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.

A nice day to connect Baldy and Boreas Mountains with an entertaining Deer Leg along the way: 7.7 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 32 days on the trails covering 267.1 miles with 27650 feet of elevation climbed.
