Catching air as we get wild skijoring Wilder Gulch this morning - wheeee!
|Absolutely perfect conditions to uncork the skijoring machine!|
Sometimes a video is a better way of showing the perfect outing than trying to describe it. Perfect conditions + perfect sled dogs = topping 25 MPH skijoring Wilder Gulch at Vail Pass.

All kinds of snow machines were out enjoying the perfect morning...
|Two types of snow machines - sled dogs and snowmobiles.|
Slowing to a gentle trot to safely pass by the snowmobile (who always nicely slow to a
safe passing speed too).
Look at this role reversal at our turnaround point of the day:
|"Rolling snow angels to cool off!" demonstrates silly Zorro.|
"Really? I would never do such silly antics!" states somber Max (the one who typically
rolls snow angels :)
Back to the trailhead. How was the outing Max?
|"Getting wild in Wilder Gulch - I LOVED it!" states ecstatic Max.|
