Bluebird Beauty

Beautiful morning to catch air as we fly past the Hallelujah Warming Hut at Breckenridge Nordic Center. Zoom!
Beautiful morning, beautiful trail, beautiful fast running & hovering sled dogs :)
We split this morning's run into two parts. I started with Jack & Rudy to get in a few laps before adding Zorro for the second half of the run. Jack & Rudy were in a real skijor groove this morning. We were tearing up the terrain in record time. We did a ridiculously fast out & back on the wide & groomed Gluteus Maximus Trail:

We then did a ridiculously fast out & back on the Gluteus Minimus narrow backcountry trail:

We were so far ahead of schedule, we did ANOTHER out & back on Gluteus Maximus before doing one more out to finally meet up with Zorro.

We then added Zorro to the team to do an out & back on the upper elevation trail at Breckenridge Nordic Center. The theme was the same: ridiculously fast on the beautiful groomed terrain:

trail this morning or just hovered the entire time ;)
Come along for today's "bluebird beauty" video: a beautiful bluebird morning with a beautiful groomie zoomie trail and three beautiful sprinting skijor partners. Wheeee!

Did I say we did an "out & back" with Zorro? Yep, well you guessed what that means - an out & back requires a turnaround...
"Silly kids!" smirks Zorro.
"Turning? That's stopping! That's ROLLING!" demonstrates goofy Jack.
"Turning? That's stopping! SNOWCONES!!!" says snow eating Rudy.
Finally, all smiles as we come to the end of a beautiful and ridiculously fast skijor morning!
Nancy's camera is not the best in shade/low light; but you can still make out
the smiles on the happy, happy sled dog trio!
