Snow Day

Fresh snow all over the trails with increasingly strong snowfall developing all morning long!
Laying fresh tracks in 1-2 inches of snow as we cruise by historic Sally Barber Mine.
Our route took us up & over the Sally Barber Mine Trail and then out & back on the French Gulch Trail. Did I say, "French Gulch?" You bet, so you know what that means:
"Beep beep - our noses say to look for moose this way!" declare my moose spotters following
their noses to stare across the gulch. I think I spotted the moose that tickled their noses deep
in the trees.
Note the big snowflake in the prior photo centered on Max's neck. Our outing started with a light snowfall and it continued to increase in intensity the entire outing. Eventually we got to "too much snow to keep the camera clear" and the rest of the day's footage looked like the following:
Snow spots all over the camera as we only get blurry views of sprinting Max & Zorro.
But, no complaints here, we'll take blurred footage from increasing snowpack any day! 9.2 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 33 days on the trails covering 246.9 miles with 25,450 feet of elevation climbed.
