After skijoring up steep Baldy Mountain this morning, we got to enjoy the fast ride down!
|Opening up the throttle as we fly down the Baldy Mountain Trail - wheeee!|
It was a rare treat on the way up - laying fresh tracks in the morning's new snow. Baldy is a very popular trail, so laying fresh tracks on Baldy is a rare treat. There was an existing set of tracks for the first mile or so; but then we were first on the fresh snow the rest of the way up. Fun!
|Freshies! Love carving our own trail in the freshies!|
What goes up, must come down... The ride down Baldy is always fast & fun. Here is a video clip of our favorite straightaway on the way down - zoom! And, yes, I almost lose it in an unexpected dip in the trail about 30 seconds into this clip; but I was able to recover - phew!

|"Hi, bye... Glad to put a smile on your faces!" say Max & Zorro trotting by a group of hikers.|
It was a fun day all around. Just ask Max & Zorro:
|"Love the 'Baldy Climb Up' followed by 'Baldy Free Fall Down'!" declare the very happy|
and satisfied pair at a quick break point on the trail.
