Beautiful morning to trot by the Shrine Mountain Huts.
Trotting by the biggest of the 8 or so backcountry huts. 
Max & Zorro always have a blast cruising by all the huts atop Shrine Mountain. The huts range from simple yurts to large cabins (as shown above) with just about every size in between. The only way to access the huts in the winter is by ski or snowshoe, making for a peaceful backcountry vacation getaway.

We did a quick skijor climb up Shrine Pass, weaved our way by all the huts, explored miles of untouched terrain atop Shrine Mountain and then zipped back down Shrine Pass. Once you ski by all the huts, you are treated to pretty much endless opportunities to skijor all around Shrine Mountain atop the solid spring crust. With such endless terrain, we decided to play "fly games". Who do you vote for in today's fly contest?
Nice form from flying Zorro. 
Not to be outdone, check out the flying Max!
So tough to pick a winner from today's fly games... But, I think I'll go with Max as today's winner. Both are impressive; but Max's shadow is incredible too! :)

Everyone having a good time?
"You bet!" exclaims happy Max as I called out, "Who's having fun?"
"A blast!" states happy little Zorro.

A fun day playing on Shrine Mountain: 8.8 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 133 days on the trails covering 1117.2 miles with 122,500 feet of elevation climbed.
