A typical day skijoring French Gulch: fast terrain + moose distractions :)
|Pedal to the metal on the fast & wide trail in lower French Gulch. Zoom!|
As you can see in the prior photo - the terrain was fast packed & wide down low. The trail always narrows as you go further and further until it was fast packed & barely 2 Siberians wide.
|Just wide enough to keep shoulder-to-shoulder at a pretty fast pace. Wheeee!|
Fast and flying all over the terrain until.... Fresh smelling moose tracks pulled us off the trail to inspect. We saw big two-toed moose prints along the trail until the big moose decided to hang a right and head off into the gulch.
|"Wow - this smells VERY fresh!" exclaims track inspecting Zorro.|
"I know, I know - you check the track and I'll search for moose! Where is the moose?!?" asks
terrain scanning Max.
Always fun to stand in a fresh moose track trough and search for the moose.
|"I think we should follow this track!" declares moose seeking Zorro.|
"Still scanning... Where is that darned moose?!?" states focused Max.
