Speeding and Moosing

Speeding on Sally Barber.
Moosing in French Gulch.
Speeding on French Gulch.
What a skijoring trifecta this morning!
Speeding along the Sally Barber Mine Trail - zoom!

After doing a fast up & over Sally Barber Mine, it was time to head out French Gulch on the search for the ever present moose this season....
"BINGO!!!!!" exclaim the professional moosers as they spotted a mother and calf to the right!
"I see them! I see them!" declares excited Max.
"Down in front! Oh, I see them too!" states short Zorro peeking in front of tall Max to see the moose.

Drifting off the trail a bit from the previous photo and pausing in the shoulder snow to watch the mother and child:
I have circled them since, as usual, the moose are always so camouflaged in the trees.
"What do you mean camouflaged? We see them RIGHT THERE!" declare the moose staring
Max & Zorro.

Done moosing in French Gulch, time to go speeding back to the trailhead:
Tight knit & sprinting skijor machine! Wheeee!

Speeding, moosing and then speeding - what a fun outing: 9.1 miles traveled with 950 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 45 days on the trails covering 380.6 miles with 40200 feet of elevation climbed.
