This morning's skijor outing was dominated by dense fog with fast sprints whenever the fog lifted.
|Break in the fog as we are flying along the trail about to kick it into another gear on the|
upcoming slight downhill. GPS clocked us at 25 MPH today!
We had many sections of trail where the fog was so dense that I had no real idea where the trail was. I just put my trust in Max & Zorro to take us the right way....
|Can you see a trail? Neither could I! Just trust the sled dogs to take you the right way.|
I would just follow Max & Zorro through the dense fog and was amazed that they never veered from the trail! We would pass the occasional trail marker telling us we were on track. On a clear day you can alway see 5-10 trail markers ahead of you. Today we could only see one when we were right next to it! Amazing trail skills from these two!
|Trail marker to the left. You cannot see anything but Max & Zorro demonstrated perfect|
trail following skills all morning!
Whenever the fog would lift slightly, it was pedal to the metal!
|"Break in the fog - go!" says sprinting Zorro.|
"Here I come too!" says cute Max giving Zorro an approving look as we start a sprint.
Despite dense fog, we were on one of our favorite "fast trails" at Rabbit Ears Pass. So, I just put my trust in Max & Zorro and we covered some serious distance & speed: 9.6 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 25 MPH.
2015/2016 Season to Date: 59 days on the trails covering 501.9 miles with 52800 feet of elevation climbed.
Surpassing 500 miles for the season. 500 and counting...
