We are happy to report we skijored less mileage than usual due to breaking trail in about 15 inches of fresh powder this morning!
|Max & Zorro plowing through 15 inches of fresh powder as they tow me for miles & miles!|
What a fun Siberian Workout!
|We go a little slower in single file configuration; but notice that Zorro's back feet are airborne.|
We go "slower", not "slow" in this setup :)
|Entertaining the crowds as Zorro takes point along this portion of single track.|
Our outing went as follows: (1) break trail up the back side of Sally Barber Mine; (2) jog single file down the front side of Sally Barber in the set single track; (3) continue single file in a set track in lower French Gulch; and (4) break trail in 12-15 inches of powder in mid French Gulch. Fun!
Did I say "French Gulch"? Well, you know what that means....
|"MOOSE! Found one!!!!" declare my moose spotting pair (their noses took them off trail|
to stare into the trees here).
|"Who needs an arrow - she is RIGHT THERE!!!!" declare Max & Zorro.|
After an aerobic day of breaking trail and jogging single file, we added a final "cool down" mile on plowed & easy French Gulch Road: 7.7 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 29 days on the trails covering 215.3 miles with 21,350 feet of elevation climbed.
