Celebrating a successful, albeit creative, skijor in the backcountry this morning!
|"We had a GREAT time, now how about those end-of-run treats?!?" says the happy & focused trio.|
|Nice snow coverage (although narrow & heavily packed) as we ride up & out of town.|
So the plan was to let the youngsters tow me up and eventually we would meet up with Zorro & Nancy and continue to skijor the much less steep but still heavily shaded backside of Sally Barber Mine. Zorro joined in, everyone ready to go?
|"Yes!!!!" exclaims the happy trio.|
|Great shot of the "sprint tucked trio" as we fly along a perfect trail!|
|"Please tell me they did SOMETHING other than this before I joined!" states Zorro.|
"We are the snow rolling goof twins!" declares Jack & Rudy.

Finally, winding out the day with the happy trio towing me to the trailhead.
|"So happy to be towing the human!" demonstrates the sled dog trio.|
