A action packed day of "moosing" while skijoring French Gulch this morning.
|"What a fun day! Love going 'moosing'!" exclaim my ecstatic pair at a turnaround point|
on the trail this morning.
We headed up the French Gulch trail too - with me snowplowing while going uphill trying to keep under control until we found the moose. As we came around a corner, we saw him ahead of us on the trail. Once he heard us coming (thanks Max :), he hopped off the trail and into the gulch. We stopped and watched him saunter off into the deep brush and eventually into French Creek in the middle of the gulch. Very exciting.
|Here we are watching the big bull moose wander away. Amazing how hard it is too see him|
in this photo when even his big antler rack was clear as day to Max, Zorro and I!
|Catching air as we top 23 MPH skijoring. Wheeee!|
