Holy Smokes... What's more impressive "flying Max" or the freshly groomed track atop Rabbit Ears Pass?
Unbelievable shot of out-stretched & flying Max. Zorro is flying too (look at his airborne shadow)
but I am more behind Zorro than Max so we get this great profile shot of flying Max. Impressive!
We arrived at our favorite speed track at Rabbit Ears to find it freshly groomed. There were two fat bike tracks on the snow before us and that was it. Max & Zorro were crazy fast today on the speedy terrain.
Hover husky Max with out-stretched Zorro to his side and a fat bike track in between them. Oh yeah,
and "all white" as far as the eye can see!
I think the fat bike tracks gave Max & Zorro a little extra juice in their engines today. "Must catch whoever is in front of us!" was their motto of the day. Put anything "human powered" in front of us and eventually we'll catch it :)
Catching up to the two fat bikers on the trail in front of us. They got off their bikes to chat with
Max & Zorro (and me too :)  Of course, Max & Zorro took the opportunity to flirt back.
After passing the two bikers, we had the freshly groomed track untouched and all to ourselves. Holy smokes did Max & Zorro put that track to use! Watch the short video clip below as we top 24 MPH skijoring the pristine track!

After turning around to head back, we came upon 4 sets of fat bike tracks: the out and then back of the 2 bikers who had turned around a little bit after we passed them the first time.

Since the bikers turned around behind us, you know what that means... Catch and pass again!
"Coming through... Hi again, bye again!" say Max & Zorro to the biker as we catch and
pass him on the trail.

Best way to summarize today's incredible outing? Holy smokes! 10.3 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 126 days on the trails covering 1052.6 miles with 111,400 feet of elevation climbed.
