We were able to skijor on 4 different types of terrain this morning. All in one outing!
|Lower French Gulch: packed and fast!|
Eventually you out-ski the popular lower section of French Gulch and get into the lesser used terrain. Only serious cross-country skiers come back this far as it is a lot of work to get here without Siberian Skijor Power (it takes us only 20 minutes to get to this terrain whereas a typical cross-country skier would take more than an hour).
|Getting far back in the gulch and riding in a single track barely two Siberians wide.|
|No signs of previous humans. Just us Siberians towing the human way back here. The indentations|
going perpendicular in front of us were moose tracks; but not very fresh as Max & Zorro only
gave them a "passing sniff" as we cruised by.
|"Swimming in a moose trough - follow me this way!" declares silly Zorro who can barely see|
above the snow since the moose trough is so deep.
"I'm in, I'm in!" says silly Max perfectly willing to listen to Zorro and follow the moose.
A mostly fast day on the packed part of French Gulch with some narrow, deep and moose trough fun deeper in the gulch: 8.8 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 39 days on the trails covering 293.7 miles with 29,550 feet of elevation climbed.
