"Work to Play" skijor on Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.
|Opening the throttle on a fresh snowmobile track - wheeee!|
We started the day as the first tracks on the trail. This found us laying fresh tracks to breaking trail in 4-6 inches of fresh snow. A fun workout to start the day...
|Fresh powder all to ourselves as we work to set reset the trail in the snow.|
Fresh tracks to breaking trail is more of a workout than a packed trail; but that does not mean it is not super fun. Paused for a moment, "everyone having a good time?"...
|"Absolutely - love laying fresh tracks!" exclaims happy Max.|
"Well... I *was* having fun until you paused to ask!!!" says 'why are we stopped' Zorro.
About 1/2 way through the outing and a group of snowmobiles passed us on the trail. From working to lay fresh tracks and break trail to playing in an easy snowmobile track!!!
|"Did you see the easy track they just laid in front of us!" declares happy Zorro.|
"I foresee speed in my future!" states 'trail inspecting' Max.
Running in fresh snowmobile tracks is fun & easy - wheeee!
|Zooming along the 'snowmobile paved trail'.|
