Tracks and Freshies

A great morning playing in the new snow atop Rabbit Ears Pass. Wheeee!
Laying fresh tracks as Rabbit Ears Peak comes into if you draw a line straight ahead of Max.
The two large rocks (the ears) atop the peak are the feature for which Rabbit Ears Pass gets
its name.
We had all kinds of fun exploring different parts of Rabbit Ears this morning. We started by following snowmobile tracks for miles. As you can tell by all the tracks, everybody got word of how much fresh snow had fallen on Rabbit Ears the last few days (10 to 20 inches, depending on where you were on the pass).
Galloping along as we follow recent snowmobile tracks.
Eventually we decided to abandon the tracks and make our own way through open meadows atop Rabbit Ears. We found ourselves laying fresh tracks in 6-8 inches of powder during this part of the outing!
Max powering along as snow poofs up all around him.
Zorro going airborne to leap and fly over the fresh powder!
Finally, we dipped into the trees to find a few inches of untouched snow atop old snowmobile tracks as we sprinted along laying fresh tracks. Come along and watch the fun we had cruising through the forest. Zoom!
