Rudy could taste the 'end of run' treats before I started handing them out!
|"Slurp, I can taste them with anticipation!" declares slurping Rudy :)|
"You have our FULL attention!" adds Zorro & Jack.
You can view Sally Barber as having 2 sides. There is the lesser used west side that does not get much traffic and there is the well publicized east side that gets lots and LOTS of use from both locals and tourists. To get the most out of our initial run with the kids we went up, down and then back up the lesser used west side before coming down the east side to meet with Zorro. We found 2-4 inches of new snow on the trail so were laying fresh tracks up the west side and then reusing our tracks down and back up - fun!
|Reusing the track we set on the way up to open up the throttle on the way down - zoom!|
|Whee - a rare treat laying fresh tracks on the popular side of Sally Barber.|

Done with Sally Barber and we hooked up with Zorro to lay fresh tracks out French Gulch before returning back to the trailhead. I guess the subzero wind chill kept everyone except the Siberian Huskies (and their crazy human) off the trails this morning :)

|Nice "rodent swan dive" from Rudy.|
Nice "rodent cannonball dive" from Jack.
|"DUNK - we smell and hear rodents under the snow!" says the head dunked hunting pair.|
