Action Shots

Some great "action shots" of Max & Zorro skijoring today!

Synchronized "sprint tuck"...
Almost our first "hover husky" shot of the season. But, Max's right toes are in "snow dust" and
you cannot really see that Zorro is airborne with all the snow dust he kicked up around himself.
Long Max as we sprint in 3-4 inches of fresh powder...
Go Max Go - what a long boy!
Zorro the "flying Z"...
I swear Zorro spends 1/2 of our skijor outings completely airborne. He's always flying :)
There is only one thing that can bring such fun action to a stop. Moose! Be it moose tracks, the scent of moose our a moose itself - any of these three things can halt my skijor buddies.
"Sniff, sniff. Fresh Moose Tracks!" declare Max & Zorro's noses.

"Very fresh tracks - he went this way! Can we too?!?" ask my silly moose seeking partners.

As you can see from the first 3 pictures, we had a great time laying fresh tracks in 3-5 inches of powder atop Rabbit Ears Pass; and we also had a great time dipping our noses in fresh moose tracks!

8.3 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 15 days on the trails covering 105.4 miles with 10600 feet of elevation climbed. 100+ miles and counting...
