Having a blast breaking trail in about 15 inches of fresh powder in French Gulch! Wheeee!
|Gliding along in 15+ inches of powder. What impressive sled dogs!!!|
We are at the tail end of a great storm from the previous few days dumping upwards of 2 feet of snow in and around Breckenridge. Today we decided to take Zorro & Jack for a long run in French Gulch to enjoy all the new snow. There has been so much snow, that we were able to start on French Gulch Road and run in tire tracks until entering the real French Gulch Trail.

Besides great snow, the biggest attraction of French Gulch is ... MOOSE!!! We did not see a moose this morning, but the "scent of moose" drew Zorro & Jack off trail once into deep snow as they scanned the forest for the source of the moose aroma. No visuals, but still fun to scan:
|"Come out, come out wherever you are. We SMELL you!!!!" declare the moose scanning|

|Evil, just plain evil!!!! Why remove snow!!!!!|
