How is this for pristine & untouched open space on May 28th?

As we approached the trees you see in front of us in the prior photo, I called out a "right turn" to my partners as I started turning right too. This lead to a fun profile shot of my impressive partners:

|"Oh yes! Incredible!" says fun Max.|
"I could go all day!" expresses happy Zorro.
Believe it or not: but winter is finally supposed to end starting today. With warm temperatures starting to arrive, this was probably our last run in the "9 mile range" for the season. But, the impressive May snow we have had has certainly left enough snowpack for us to reach 1400 miles. Today's tally: 8.8 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 166 days on the trails covering 1381.9 miles with 146,000 feet of elevation climbed.
Approaching 1400 miles... Stay tuned :)
