Check out the incredible conditions "up high" on the Harrison Creek trail at Rabbit Ears Pass:
|October 4th? Really? Pinch me :)|
Beautiful snow as we follow a snowmobile trail through the forest.
(1) Wide water crossings.... Large (partially frozen) puddles dominated the terrain for the first 1/3 of the outing.
|Just enough snow & ice to cross this large puddle to the right.|
|Just close your eyes and let Max & Zorro guide you through - they will ALWAYS avoid water|
and keep me on the most suitable terrain.
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]
|Max's nose in a bear track (Zorro's too, but you cannot see his nose).|
Another bear track to the left of my ski tip.
"Sniff, sniff - we don't get this nose treat often!" say the track inspecting pair.
Sketchy down low, narrow in the middle and perfect up high: 8.4 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.
2017/2018 Season to Date: 2 days on the trails covering 17.2 miles with 1900 feet of elevation climbed.
