Catching air in a skijor sprint in mid May - Yay!!!
|Sprinting along in between sun & shade as we get both Max & Zorro in just enough sun to|
showcase their hover husky form with the nice shadows.
|A beautiful spring crust to sprint on at elevations over 11,000 feet on Vail Pass.|
Oh, nice views too on this gorgeous morning!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
|"Must roll in the snow to cool off!" demonstrates silly Max.|
"He's silly! Can we go yet?" says happy little Zorro.
|"Oh yes! Sooooo nice up high!!!!" exclaim the happy pair at our turnaround point of the morning.|
It was "soft & choppy" terrain down low but certainly worth it to get to the perfect conditions up high: 9.1 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 151 days on the trails covering 1267.6 miles with 134,500 feet of elevation climbed.
