June Air

Another 9+ mile skijor in June at Rabbit Ears Pass - Woo Hoo!
"It was FANTASTIC!" exclaim my ecstatic partners at our turnaround point of the day.

It is June, though, so the outing required some creativity. Check out the following photo and you will be surprised to know we skijored over this river just two days ago via a snow bridge over the water! The snow & terrain on the other side of this river is still incredible, so we walked along until we found a narrow opening that all of us could leap over and then continue skijoring again.
"I could leap across here, but I'm pretty sure you would not make it!" declares Max.
"What happened to our snow bridge?!?" asks bewildered Zorro.

But, outside of a few trail obstacles like the one above, the terrain was incredible. Here we are catching air in June. Wow & Wheeee!

Yet, the "signs of summer" are getting bigger and bigger - boo!
"Yikes, who melted our snow!" asks Zorro.
"Hmmm, even I could not leap this crossing!" declares trail inspecting Max.

We'll take a few trail obstacles for 9+ miles of skiable terrain in June any day! Such a fun run deserves some "end of run" pork treats for towing me all over the place!
"Gimme, gimme!" says happy Max.
"Can you feel my intense stare?" asks piercing Zorro.

The signs of summer are popping up, but we are still punching out 9 mile runs in June! 9.1 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 151 days on the trails covering 1271.2 miles with 138,250 feet of elevation climbed.
