A rare treat this morning: laying fresh tracks on the front side of the Sally Barber Mine Trail!
|It is not so obvious given the lighting; but we are laying fresh tracks in 2-3 inches of new|
snow on the front side of the Sally Barber Mine Trail! What a treat!
After skijoring up & over Sally Barber, it was time to add an out & back to French Gulch to our outing. French Gulch is our favorite "moose seeking" trail. While our noses certainly caught the "whiff of moose" this morning, we failed to spot any such big beasts. But, it was not from a lack of effort :)

|Floor it - as we surpass 20 MPH. Zoooooom!!!|
Despite the lack of "French Gulch Moose" it was still a very entertaining day with rare fresh tracks on Sally Barber and snowcones + snow angels + pedal to the metal in French Gulch: 9 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 40 days on the trails covering 302.7 miles with 30,450 feet of elevation climbed.
