It was a "snowing & blowing" morning at Rabbit Ears Pass.
Max & Zorro thought the conditions were PERFECT...
Take a look at the following photo and consider this: there was NO fog or low clouds this morning...
|The swirling white going up to about the middle of the tree in front of us is blowing snow.|
The "dense looking fog" above the blowing snow is not fog at all but heavily falling snow!
A day only a Siberian could love...
|More blowing snow all around us and Max & Zorro are hopping through deep snow to|
break trail. Notice all the snowflakes you can see against Zorro's black fur.
|"Aaahhh, look at my snow covered head!" exclaims Zorro as he is coming out of a snow|
angel roll and is very happy & content with his snow covered body!
"Amateur!" says Max....
|"Now this is how you roll a snow angel!" demonstrates Max the professional snow roller.|
Low temperatures + heavy snow + constant wind + intense wind gusts meant the wimpy human cut the day's outing short: 5.4 miles traveled with 600 feet of elevation climbed. What a wimp I am :)
2016/2017 Season to Date: 97 days on the trails covering 802.7 miles with 86,700 feet of elevation climbed.
