Group Fun

Having a blast frolicking with multiple dog sled teams from Good Times Adventures on the trails this morning!
"I sense this is going to be a FUN day!" says happy Max looking back at me to give his
foreshadow of the day.
"Hi friends - we'll be running with you soon!" says Zorro to his sled dog buddies passing by.

We had a great day of "back & forth" with the dog sled teams. We'd fly by some, we'd watch others pass us by and we'd run along with a few more. Here we go - wheeee....

Cruising along the trail as we flirt with a team paused on a trail to our right:
"Hi guys! Catch us if you can!" say Max & Zorro to their buddies.
Our turn to pause and let a team go by:
"Hehe - we see you looking at us too!" as you can see two friends looking over at us
as they go by.
We came around a corner from one trail to another and their was a team that just connected to this same trail from the opposite side. Oh boy "sled dog chase" :)
"Here we come!!!! Zoom!" say Max & Zorro putting the pedal to the metal to run with the
team in front to us.
Sprinting along as we see a team paused to let us fly by:
"Hi friends - can you match our speed?" say Max & Zorro to the team watching us
from the right.
One more "sprint by a paused team" - wheeee:
You can see the Siberians from the other team just over the snow wall to our right.
We are all "just tall enough" to see and flirt with each other over the snow wall.
Finally, here is how Max & Zorro like to perform a close "on by" with a paused team. The behavior of each matches their personalities perfectly. Max will typically back off the gangline and slow so he can flirt with the other Siberians. Zorro, on the other hand, will kick it into overdrive as he likes to sprint past any stopped sled dog.
"Hi friends - happy to see you!" says Max slowing to flirt.
"Haha, look at me FLY by!" says silly 'haha Zorro' picking up his pace to pass.

Some much fun interacting with all the dog sled teams from Good Times this morning: 10.3 miles traveled with 1100 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 60 days on the trails covering 466.9 miles with 49,100 feet of elevation climbed.
