Nice view of the snow & cloud covered Rocky Mountains from high atop Vail Pass this morning.
|The "morning clouds" are beginning to burn off to bring out the sun and show off the|
snow capped peaks all around us.
|Max & Zorro leaving their footprints in the snow as we lay fresh tracks atop Vail Pass in May.|
|Wheeee we go laying fresh tracks for miles & miles up high!|
|"Turnaround, really? Why, so nice up here!" asks 'listening but questioning me' Max.|
"I'm with Max - why turnaround?" asks happy Zorro.
A great outing on the upper terrain at Vail Pass. Unfortunately, the "entrance points" will be back down to dirt & mud tomorrow (or within the next 1-2 days). So, we got a surprise trip back to Vail Pass in late May but must say good-bye to these trails until October: 8.7 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 161 days on the trails covering 1342.6 miles with 142,200 feet of elevation climbed.
