Nothing quite like laying fresh tracks in early October! Yay!
|Beautiful shot of my partners laying fresh tracks as they tow me and the sled all|
around Buffalo Pass.
The weather forecasts on Monday were "all over the map" about what might happen Monday night and early Tuesday. From nothing to rain to snow, all were predicted. Well... SNOW WON!!! Woo Hoo! Buffalo Pass, in NW Colorado, got a wonderful dump of fresh snow. Not enough snow for skis, but plenty for the dog sled. So, we all got up early to get to Buffalo Pass and enjoy the freshies. As you can see from the prior photo, it was a success.
In addition to a great day of laying fresh tracks, we had a ton of other Siberian Fun...
|"Aaahhhh, love snow!" declares snow angel rolling Max at our midpoint break.|
|"Me too! Me too!!!!" declares snow rolling Zorro. This was Zorro's first snow angel of|
this young 2016/2017 ski season. It was probably Max's 8th or 9th (yes, he's managed to
roll angels 9 times in 3 outings :)
Checking in with my partners at the midpoint turnaround...
|"Everyone having a great day?" I asked...|
"YES!!!! Couldn't you tell!" declare my happy & focused partners
