Doing one of Zorro's (and Max's) favorite things on Zorro's 9th birthday:
Catching air while skijoring!
|Airborne & flying sled dogs as we catch air skijoring atop Walton Peak.|
|"Happy birthday little bro!" yells Max to Zorro.|
"I'm 9 and flying!!! Wheeee!" responds Zorro :)
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
|"Oh yes, the BEST present!!!" says happy little Zorro.|
"Happy to be part of the present!" adds happy Max.
|"Toes on snow in June - need we say more? Loving Life!"|
It was a different than usual outing for us at Rabbit Ears Pass. Usually we cover lots of miles on gently rolling terrain; but the big melt is on at lower elevations so we took a steep route to get us as high as possible quickly. As you see in the video above, the terrain was still great once we got up high! 7.6 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 168 days on the trails covering 1397.9 miles with 147,900 feet of elevation climbed.
