Starting the day laying fresh tracks in 3+ inches of powder with Jack & Rudy!
|Zooming along as we lay fresh tracks in 3+ inches of powder. Wheeee!|
It was a beautiful morning with 3 and up to 5 inches of fresh snow on the trails (3 inches lower and upwards of 5 inches as we climbed). The skies were overcast with the promise of more snow to fall. But, we started the day with clear conditions laying fresh tracks.
About 1/3 of the way into the outing and it started snowing lightly. Rudy decided to give us a beautiful rodent dive to showcase the lightly falling snowflakes against his long body :)
|"Dunking for rodents!" demonstrates silly Jack.|
"Incoming - here's my WHOLE profile to showcase the snowflakes!" says Rudy.
Notice the flakes you can make out against his red fur and purple harness.
|You cannot really make out the snowflakes all around us until you look|
at them against the dark outfit of the guy to our left.
"Hi... bye!" says Jack & Rudy cruising by and bringing smiles to the faces.
I would wipe the camera and get a partially clear shot of the fun trio:
|Flying Zorro on the right.|
Hovering Jack in the middle.
Slightly blurred, but fast running Rudy to the left.
|Blurred, but flying, Zorro on the right.|
Blurred and sprint-tucked Jack in the middle.
Clearest and most visible Rudy to the left.
Snow spots all over the camera - yay for snow!

Finally, coming around the final bend in the trail as Nancy was just on the other side. You can see my pals cutting the corning tight (as they always do) as I am trying to swing wide and keep this crazy vehicle under control :)
|Tight cornering, all smiles and more snowflakes|
visible against everyone's fur.
Fun note for the season. If you've followed along you know Zorro has been on all but 2 of our outings this year; but he does partial runs most of the time as he is approaching 12 years old. Well, the impressive "11 approaching 12 year old" just surpassed 500 miles for himself on the season. Zorro's total miles: 500.2. Impressive for his age!!!!!
2019/2020 Season to Date: 128 days on the trails covering 867.3 miles with 79,350 feet of elevation climbed.
