Breaking trail in 1-2 feet of snow on Baldy Mountain this morning!
|All smiles as Max is leading Zorro through about a foot of fresh powder.|
I took the opportunity to ski next to them to get a nice happy face shot :)
When we are doing "extreme trail breaking", Max & Zorro will situate themselves single file and take turns being the one in lead doing the most work.
|At least 18 inches deep in this shot as Max sets the trail for all of us to follow.|
|Okay little Zorro, your turn to set the trail!|
|Where are Max & Zorro?|
Both of them quickly rest & recharge when behind the slow human and one or both will push me out of the way after a short while to put a real workhorse back in front. Our distribution of "who is breaking trail in lead" was about 55-60% Max, 35-40% Zorro and at most 5% me, the ridiculously slow human :)
We kept ourselves to a short outing this morning since we knew it was going to be lots of aerobic trail breaking work: 4.7 miles traveled in 1-2 feet of snow with 800 feet of elevation climbed.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 56 days on the trails covering 431.1 miles with 45,400 feet of elevation climbed.
