Good Time

All smiles as we arrive at the end of our 10 mile skijor this morning!
3 smiling boys! Look closely, you can see the big grin on my face too :)
We went to the trails at Swan Valley this morning to do one of our favorite activities: skijor along with the Dog Sled Teams from Good Times Adventures. When we do this, we have some fun touring around the trails by ourselves first and then we find some of the teams to run along with.

Here we go....
Max & Zorro flying as you can make out an 8-dog team with sled and musher dead ahead
of us on the trail.
Coming upon a team paused on the trail as we pass on by.
"Hi friends!" say Max & Zorro as we cruise by.
Max has backed off his gangline to flirt with the team while Zorro continues to
floor it on by :)

Finally, here is a great video showing our fun following a dog sled team. You cannot see the dog sled, yet, as the video starts (although the 3 of us could); but watch as we fly along the trail to catch up with them and then I "hold us back" to follow until they stop and we pass. Wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

So much fun running with the dog teams: 10 miles traveled with 1100 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 41 days on the trails covering 312.7 miles with 31,550 feet of elevation climbed.
