Playing "air games" on the fast terrain at Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.
|White as far as the eye can see as we sprint along our favorite 'easy trail' at Rabbit Ears.|
The snow was just soft enough for us to open the throttle all day in snowmobile tracks at Rabbit Ears and just hard enough to make for a fast sprint track. Too hard would be icy (and scary & dangerous for the human) whereas too soft would slow us down with sinking paws. But, the perfect level of soft & hard made for a fast and fun day!
Here we are cresting over one hight point as Zorro gives me a little glance of what he has planned.
|"You still there? Good, I call for air games!" smirks cute little Zorro.|
Okay then, air games it is. You first Max:
|"Whee - sprinting and catching air!" demonstrates airborne Max.|
"I got that beat!" states Zorro:
|One of Zorro's nicknames is "z-ball" and now you see why. Look at that tight sprint ball|
bouncing high in the air! Impressive.
Enough solo games, let's put it all together:
|Synchronized & airborne sprinting pair and perfect terrain. What a day!|
Love playing air games on fast trails!
|"You are a crazy sprint ball kid!" says Max to Zorro.|
"Bouncing z-ball, that's my name, that's my game!" states proud Zorro.
