Flying (literally!) all over Rabbit Ears Pass this morning!
|"Hehe, we can fly! What a fast & fun outing!" declare the happy pair at our turnaround point|
of the morning.
Yesterday morning we found a surprise groomed section of trail at Rabbit Ears Pass ('surprise' meaning we had assumed all the groomers were put away for the season). But, we only had the chance to briefly tickle our toes on the surprise groomed terrain as we found it after we were done with most of the outing. Knowing we had a late May speed track sent us back this morning. We started where we ended yesterday on the groomie zoomie and followed it as far as it lasted.
Well, it turns out there was only above 5 miles of this perfect groomed terrain. We were having such fun on the speed track that I was able to convince Max & Zorro to repeat 3 sections (typically they are not interested in repeating trails :) This lead to an extremely fast 7.6 mile outing.
The pictures are quite impressive, so let's get to the details...
Flying (literally!) along the late May groomie zoomie:
|So impressive! I am positioned slightly to the left behind Max & Zorro so you get an incredible|
view of flying Max!
I am always torn what shots of Max & Zorro are more impressive - the Flying Siberians (previous shot) or the Siberian Hovercraft (next shot):
|Catching air - wheeee!|
Different section of trail, same theme - fly, fly, fly...
|"Hey little bro - can you fly like me?" asks Max to Zorro as he glances to the right as both are|
entering a take off.
This time I am positioned more behind Max than Zorro so we get a view of the Flying Z:
|"Up, up & away - I am Super Z!" declares Zorro the Flying Siberian.|
We only had time for a short outing; but it was a ridiculously fast & fun "late May speed day" - 7.6 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.
2015/2016 Season to Date: 142 days on the trails covering 1191.4 miles with 130,700 feet of elevation climbed.
