Combining two fun activities on this morning's outing: sprinting and hunting!
We started on a packed side trail with a 1/2 inch or so of new snow - just enough fresh snow to safely uncork the skijoring engine:
|Zoom we go, flying along the fast trail.|
|Zorro the flying z-ball and Max the long-bodied sprinter :)|
|"Oh boy - radar says something very smelly & tasty this way!" declare my powder plows.|
|"Bingo - we see that tasty smelling porcupine!" declare my hunting pair.|
The porcupine is not really visible, but I just followed Max & Zorro's stare and saw it moving
and getting ready for any prey that might come too close. Yikes.
|"Aaahhh, rolling snow angels to cool off!" demonstrates Zorro.|
"DUNK! Cooling my head!" shows head dunking Max.
A fast day on speedy trails with a deep powder porcupine tour added in for fun: 9.1 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 25 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 76 days on the trails covering 614.7 miles with 65,900 feet of elevation climbed.
