A beautiful bluebird day following snowmobile tracks in deep snow at Rabbit Ears Pass!
Sprinting along in a fresh snowmobile track  - wheeee!
Max & Zorro took the opportunity this morning to reinforce the "Siberian Husky Rules of Skijoring". It really is quite simple...

Rule #1: GO (see the photo above).
Rule #2: Stop for moose or moose tracks and nothing else (see below).
"These moose tracks smell VERY fresh!" declares track sniffing Max.
"Fresh indeed, I'm looking for the big body - where is it?!?" states forest inspecting Zorro.
Rule #3 (optional): Make sure the human knows when he is taking TOO LONG to get us hooked up and GOING (see Rule #1 :)
Max always employs Rule #3 when I am taking too long. "Come on! Get with it!" woos Max
at me at the trailhead. Zorro tends to ignore Rule #3 (it is optional) and let Max do the lecturing
on behalf of both of them :)
As you can see by the photos, there is suddenly a ton of snow at Rabbit Ears - the trails are FINALLY getting set for us to go, go, go (remember Rule #1 :)
Out-stretched sprinting Zorro and sprint-tucked Max as we fly along the trails.

A fun day enforcing all 3 rules of Siberian Husky Skijoring: 10.4 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 18 days on the trails covering 131.1 miles with 13050 feet of elevation climbed.
