French Gulch presented us with "4 types of trails" on this morning's outing - fun!

Our skijoring pace on the lower/mid trail was ridiculously fast, I was thinking we were going to top 11 miles on this outing at that pace. But, as is always the case with French Gulch, eventually the super fast lower/mid trail gives way to lesser used upper French Gulch. The upper section of trail was a narrow single track just barely 2 Siberians wide.

us into the trees ahead of us. We never saw the moose itself, but my partners noses said the
trail was VERY fresh!
|Nobody, not even moose, have been out this far in French Gulch!|
|"Well, I'm going to roll snow angels to cool off first!" demonstrates silly Max.|
"I see no, absolutely no, reason to turnaround!" says intense 'moose scanning' Zorro.
Four types of trail all within the French Gulch system: fast-packed, narrow-packed, moose-trail and no-trail. What a fun morning: 9.2 miles traveled with 1100 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 62 days on the trails covering 485.5 miles with 51,400 feet of elevation climbed.
