Entertaining and flirting with multiple groups of snowmobiles we encountered on the trail this morning.
"Hi - coming through!" say Max & Zorro entertaining the paused group of snowmobilers
as we trot by. People always break out in huge smiles when they see us!

Lots of groups of snowmobiles were out on the trails at Swan Valley this morning. Last night delivered a sweet 4-8 inches of snow (depending on elevation) for everyone to enjoy!

Today's video highlight... Cruising along the rolling Middle Fork Trail and then eventually encountering the group of paused snowmobilers to flirt with. Notice the last person in the group (at the end of the video) has pulled out her iphone to video us trotting by :)

Temperatures were in the single digits (F), the sun was blocked by clouds and there was a stiff wind all morning. I thought that was chilly. Apparently just me...
"Phew, what a hot day - rolling snow angels to cool off!" demonstrates silly Max.
"We've encountered moose on this trail before... Sniff, sniff, where are they?" says Zorro.
While Max & Zorro's noses did catch some scent of moose, we failed to actually see any.

At one of our turnaround points. Everybody having fun?
"You bet!" answers happy Max.
"Yes - but I think we should continue to the right instead of turning around!" suggests happy Zorro.

Fun day flirting with the snowmobiles: 9.4 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 57 days on the trails covering 484.9 miles with 50900 feet of elevation climbed.
