Fast Day

A fast day skijoring up, down and around French Gulch!
Zoom we go along the wide & fast packed lower section of French Gulch!

It was "wide & fast packed" down low and "narrow & fast packed" up high. The common theme: "fast packed" - wheeee!
Narrower but still "wide enough" and fast packed in upper French Gulch.

Today's video highlight is from lower French Gulch as you can watch us transition from a "skijor trot" into a "skijor sprint" - fast Max and fast Zorro!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

The terrain was so fast today that we were way ahead of schedule coming back to the trailhead. So, we went exploring on a side trail for a while and look what we found....
"I smell MOOSE in the area! Where are they?" asks terrain scanning Max.
"Right here! Fresh moose tracks!" declares head dunking Zorro.

Fresh moose tracks - really?
"You are right - very fresh! Moose was recently here!" agrees Max dunking his head in the
tracks with Zorro.

Fast & fun day with a set of fresh moose tracks for added entertainment.
"Having a blast this morning!" declare the happy pair looking back at me when I called out
time to turnaround in upper French Gulch.

8.7 miles traveled with 850 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 67 days on the trails covering 567.5 miles with 60000 feet of elevation climbed.
