So easy to run far & fast in fresh snowmobile tracks.
Would that be "Snow Easy"?
|Opening up the throttle as we have a fresh snowmobile track to follow far & fast|
at Rabbit Ears Pass.
We started the day laying fresh tracks in about 4 inches of new snow. After about 1/4 of the outing, we were passed by a group of snowmobilers. So, we went from "fun work laying fresh tracks" to "fun & fast sprinting in a snowmobile track". We were on our favorite easy trail at Rabbit Ears Pass and boy did it get easy & fast once we had the snowmobile track to follow - Snow Easy!
|Nothing but fresh snow in front of us as we are having fun setting the trail with active|
snow falling all around us.
We followed the snowmobiles for miles & miles until I called out time to turnaround and head back:
|"You sure, I thought we'd follow this track to Nome!" suggests curious Max.|
"Really? I'm with Max - keep going to Nome!" declares glancing Zorro.
No, really, time to turnaround. Ok, but first....
|"Rolling snow angels to cool off first!" declares silly Max.|
"Eating snowcones to cool off first!" declares fun Zorro.
The temperature was around 0F and there was a bit of a wind. I guess that was hot :)
A rarity at Rabbit Ears Pass - moose distraction!
