What a fun, fast and moosie day we had this morning! Wheeee!
"We had a BLAST!" declare my incredibly happy partners!
It was packed, fast and just wide enough to floor it on the Sally Barber Trail:
Zoom we go in a shoulder-to-shoulder sprint!
It was packed, fast and extremely wide on the French Gulch Trail:
Zorro the flying Z-ball levitating down the trail :)
Max sprinting along his side of the wide trail (someone had to tow me if Zorro was
levitating, right?)
How could we improve on the fast packed conditions of Sally Barber and French Gulch? Well, throw in some moose entertainment. At the far end of French Gulch, Max & Zorro found a moose track leading off into the deep snow. They convinced me it would be a good idea to follow this track because it smelled sooooo fresh. Visibility was good, so I agreed to follow the moose track. The track went forward for a bit and then the moose apparently got tired of breaking trail and turned around. So, here we are in a "moose-de-sac" (a cul-de-sac created by a moose in 3-4 feet of snow :)
"He turned around, how did we miss him?" asks Max looking back to try and find the moose.
"We should stay in this moose-de-sac until he comes back!" says Zorro as he sits to wait.
We never spotted the moose but, oh boy, did Max & Zorro's noses say the moose trough in the deep snow to the moose-de-sac smelled very FRESH!

Fast packed and then deep snow moose troughs - all in the same outing! What fun: 9 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 58 days on the trails covering 447.9 miles with 47,000 feet of elevation climbed.
