Happy Zorro towing me to the finish as Jealous Jack wants to be hooked up too!!! :)
|"Wheeee, come with meeee!" says happy Zorro as we finish the morning's run.|
"But what about meeeeeee?!?!?!?!" expresses jealous Jack.
Yesterday morning's run came along with lots of teasers until finally success...
We found a set of fresh moose tracks (and moose droppings) on the trail and followed them until they drifted off into the forest. Zorro's intensity told me how fresh the tracks were; but, alas, no moose sighting...
We found a cluster of fresh elk tracks (and elk droppings too) on the trail. Elk travel in herds, as opposed to moose that are solitary or in very small groups, so the amount of tracks on the trail was quite large. We followed these tracks until they drifted off into the forest too. Once again, Zorro's intensity told me how fresh the tracks were; but alas, no elk sightings...
Finally, we found sled dog tracks on the trail and we found sled dogs too!!!! Come along for the highlights flirting with the dog teams from Good Times Adventures.
On a side trail as a team goes along the main trail. Zorro and I let the team get a slight head start and then play "chase & follow":
|"Ready, ready... Let's chase!!!!" says Zorro lined up and ready to get going following the|
team to our right on the main trail.
|"Hi friends! Follow me!" says happy Zorro flashing a smile to the team paused to our left.|
|Look at all those happy husky faces giving Zorro a glance as they go by (and you know|
Zorro was flashing back just as happy a glance)!
|"Bye friends. See you again soon!" say Zorro and Jack to the team paused on the trail.|
