It started as a normal day skijoring up & over Sally Barber Mine...
|Cresting our initial climb as we trot by the historic mine.|
|Zoom, zoom, zooooom we gooooo! :)|
First Max & Zorro slowed and their noses shot upwards. I know this means they have got a whiff of moose. Both of their heads were spinning left/right/left/right/etc until they both locked to the right:
|"Our noses say 'GO RIGHT' - moose!!!" I quickly followed their stare and saw the butt and antler|
basket of a bull moose at the edge of the forest to our right (visible but a safe distance away).
|"Moose!!!! This way!" declare snow hopping Zorro.|
"I'm coming, I'm coming!" demonstrates snow launching Max (he was a step behind
Zorro because he had to complete his 'moose scream' before launching :)
|"He's in the trees and we KNOW IT!" declare my moose staring partners.|
A peaceful day gliding along Sally Barber and French Gulch until all moose broke loose: 8.7 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 67 days on the trails covering 531.3 miles with 56,600 feet of elevation climbed.
