Another Nine

Another "late May outing", another 9+ miles atop Rabbit Ears Pass!
How is this for an impressive panoramic snow shot for May 29th?

Our last 3 outings at Rabbit Ears Pass (May 26, 28, 29): 9.3 miles, 9.2 miles and 9.3 miles. That's some impressive skijoring miles for this late in May. Rabbit Ears is such a snow treasure and this year has been especially good.

When you are having this much fun, you might as well "catch air" while sprinting along the great terrain:
Max & Zorro doing the "Siberian Hovercraft" at its best!

Today's video highlight. We start surrounded by trees until we pop out of the trees and into an endless, wide open meadow. Wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

There is the occasional "spring breakup", but not much!
"9.3 miles of snow with 30 feet of breakup. I'll take that!" declares happy Max.
"Look at me on an iceberg ready to break off and float away!" says silly Zorro (notice he is the
only one brave enough [or crazy enough] to cross over the crack :)

Done running, time for the "end of run" pork treats:
"Hand 'em out!" says Max.
"Dude! Now!!!" declares intense Zorro.

How long will the "Rabbit Ears 9 Milers" continue? We sure hope for more! 9.3 miles traveled with 850 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 147 days on the trails covering 1235.9 miles with 134,950 feet of elevation climbed.
