Happy, happy boys on the fast groomed trails today!
|"We had a BLAST skijoring this morning!" declare my super happy partners.|
We first encountered the groomer on the upper loop at Breckenridge Nordic Center. I pulled everyone to the side and kneeled behind them holding their harnesses and then waved the groomer to continue.
|"No need to hold me, I know to stay out of the way!" Zorro is telling me.|
"Fascinating!!!!" declares Jack mesmerized by his first 'groomer in action'.
We exited the loop and connected onto the main trail and after a little distance and look what we caught up to!
|Caught the groomer! Zorro & Jack are fast!|
This was as close as I let us get before slowing everyone down.
|"Hello!!! Can we pass?" I am asking by weaving back & forth.|
"I think we could take it, just hug the right!" state Zorro and Jack.
|"Going, but this contraption is louder than we expected!" state my partners passing|
cautiously with my verbal encouragement to keep on going.
