Sprinting along as we find a nice stretch of spring crust on which to uncork the skijoring engine!
|Sprinting Zorro and flying Jack as we go full throttle on a nice stretch of solid crust.|
Come along for today's short video clip as we have just come out of some dense trees (where we had to skijor slowly and cautiously) and find the wonderful wide open meadow. Zorro and Jack both realize the meadow crust is firm enough to floor it, so off we goooooo! Wheeeeee!

As nice as that video clip looked, it is May... Young Jack got to encounter his first trail hazard this morning as we came upon a melted out patch with no way to stay on snow and cross. Zorro knows to stop and wait for my instruction at such hazards. Yet, this was Jack's first such hazard and I am very proud to say he followed Zorro's lead, came to a stop and looked back to me for instruction. Such a good boy!!!
|"Trail hazard, trail hazard, everybody slow down!" declares veteran Zorro.|
"Whoa, this does not look right. I think I'll stop and ask for guidance!" says perfect rookie Jack.
|"Fun, fun, fun!" declares happy Zorro.|
"I'm loving life!" exclaims happy Jack.
|"It was a great day!" declares Zorro.|
"Yes, so fun!" states happy Jack.
"Thanks for coming back for ME!" adds cute little Rudy.
|"This is THE LIFE! I love it!" exclaims super happy Jack at one of our two short breaks.|
