Catching Air Skijoring in Late May! Yay!
May 22nd on Walton Peak at Rabbit Ears Pass. Beautiful conditions and Zorro & Jack
"catch air" flying along the terrain.
Jack expanded his "snow angel repertoire" today to include rolling snow angels BEFORE we even got started. His repertoire now consists of (1) rolling snow angels before we start; (2) rolling snow angels during both of our short breaks; and (3) rolling snow angels after the day's run. Quite a talented young boy!
Here we are at the start of the day's outing. We have not even started our run; but silly Jack
is rolling himself in the snow!
"Love snow, love snow! Wheeee!" demonstrates silly Jack.
"Geez, we haven't even started yet! I cannot watch this silliness!" declares Zorro.
If you are rolling snow angels before you even run and get hot, then you know what happens during our short breaks:
"Ok, he's earned this roll in the snow to cool off!" declares happy Zorro at our second short break.
"Rub a dub dub, aaaaahhhh!" demonstrates silly Jack.
In between rolling snow angels, we actually did skijor :)  Come along for a short clip of the day's action. The trail may be bumpy as the camera is bouncing (and my legs were burning); but it's skijoring in late May - Yay!

Fun time, fun time, fun time! Right guys:
"Oh yes! Oh yes! So much FUN!" declare the ecstatic pair of happy huskies
Done with the outing and time to collect puppy Rudy and dish out the 'end of run' treats:
"Ready!" states intense Zorro.
"Hi mom! I had a blast today!" exclaims happy Jack looking to Nancy.
"I want treats too!!!!!" declares happy little puppy Rudy.
Today's outing was always one of our "late May goto" routes for Max, Zorro and I. To honor Max, we paused to set some of his ashes free in the slight breeze. Miss you Max!
"He was such a great pal!" declares Zorro.
"Wish I knew him!!!!" adds happy Jack.
If you look closely, the white at the top of the baggy is a puff of Max drifting off in the wind.

Still going in Late May - Yay: 3.1 miles traveled with 400 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 16 MPH.
