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.
