The usual and WONDERFUL happy faces on the trio towing to the finish of another exciting skijor outing!
|"Wheeee - happy!" says the happy running trio.|
|A glimpse of some of the ski runs of Breckenridge Ski Resort across the valley.|
Nice shot of the sled dog trio towing me up & out wide and fast
packed Boreas near the trailhead.
Here we are turned around and heading back down Boreas. Now, look closely... Zorro & Rudy are in the well-used and hard packed single track while Jack is in a softer track to the right. I set this track on the way up, knowing Jack could use it on the way down while Zorro & Rudy took the set track. See, I really do help with skijoring - I don't just sit back and ride along :)
|What a useful human to widen the trail on the way up so we could|
run 3-wide on the way down!

Okay, enough complimenting myself for helping out once... Zorro, Jack & Rudy would like to show you the real excitement on Boreas this morning. The signs of moose where everywhere!!!
Here we are cruising along the trail when moose tracks appeared and went along the trail for a bit. Look at the bottom center of this photo and you will see a big "two toed moose print"! The prints went along the trail for a bit and appeared to be very fresh!
|I certainly scanned the terrain to our left once I saw Zorro looking that way!|
Jack & Rudy and anxious to follow the moose tracks!
|"Fresh smelling moose trough!" declare Jack & Rudy submerging themselves in|
the moose holes.
"Sniff, sniff, the aroma in the air is moosely wonderful!" adds Zorro.
|Zorro now climbing down into the moose trough.|
Jack coming up from the trough to take in the scent of moose in the air.
Rudy taking a taste of the shrubbery to see why moose eat it :)
|"Moose went THIS way!" says Rudy sitting in the moose track leading into the vast meadow.|
"Nice find little brother!" says impressed Jack.
"Nice work indeed, you are coming along kid!" adds impressed Zorro.
