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.
