A beautiful bluebird morning with great snow atop Rabbit Ears Pass!
Flying Zorro alongside sprinting Jack and Rudy.
Flying Z!!!!!
It makes us so happy to see photos like the prior with 11.5 year old Zorro. Beautiful shot of the elder Flying Z!

I had a slight problem getting my boots into the ski bindings at the trailhead. This meant the youngsters were DYING waiting to get going - impatient little kids! As a result, today's video clip is a "take off start" to the day. Watch closely at the start of the video and see polite Zorro is starting gently with me while the monster kids are shot out of a cannon! Zorro quickly gets in the group as I get going and OFF we go!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

We followed snowmobile tracks out & back going fast, fast, fast all morning long. There is one stretch of this trail where we have seen moose three times. Although it has been years since our last moose sighting on this trail (with Max & Zorro, before Jack & Rudy were even born), I can always feel Zorro kick it into overdrive along this moose stretch.
Flying Z again as he is getting the kids to join in and pick up the pace along moose alley :)
Third day in a row with Jack & Rudy doing their new antic: rodent dives & dunks. They are still rolling snow angels at any pause on the trail but they have now added rodent dives/dunks to their repertoire of silly antics. They may be silly; but they are consistent :)
Headless Jack searching for rodents in the snow.
"Here I come!!!!" adds Rudy with his third straight rodent swan dive on a skijor outing.
"Oh jeez, what will they add next?" says Zorro unable to watch.
At least one of my partners listens to the "turnaround" command. Thanks Zorro!
"I'm coming, I don't know about those strange kids!" says happy Zorro.
"Hold on. Still diving, still dunking!" demonstrate the goofball twins.
Finally, some well earned treats after a fast day on great trails!
"Ready!" says the happy & focused trio.

Beautiful morning for a 6.3 mile run with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2019/2020 Season to Date: 30 days on the trails covering 193.8 miles with 20,050 feet of elevation climbed.
