"Hey, can you hear me now? I said I am having a GREAT time!" yells Rudy into Zorro's ear as we zip along the trail :)
"Hey, can you hear me now?" yells silly Rudy into Zorro's ear :)
We did what has become our favorite split route this season to give youngsters Jack & Rudy some extra distance before adding Zorro to the team to continue the outing. The route? Well, up, over and down the Sally Barber Mine Trail with Jack & Rudy and then meeting Zorro at the intersection with French Gulch and going out & back the gulch with Zorro added in.

Here we go, cresting at Sally Barber Mine with the kids before flying down the other side to meet up with Zorro.
"Hi mine, bye mine!' says the fast pair cruising on by.
Once meeting up with Zorro, we were delighted to find the French Gulch Trail untouched with about 2-3 inches of fresh snow all to ourselves. Perfect conditions for elder Zorro as the trio was able to lay fresh tracks all the way out the gulch.
Freshies! Laying fresh tracks in 2-3 inches of new snow all to ourselves!
I'm sure you knew what was coming once I said we did an "out & back" in French Gulch. Yep, turnaround snow angels from Jack. Young Jack has now rolled a snow angel on EVERY outing of his skijoring career! This was Jack's 264th straight skijor outing with him rolling at least one snow angel. What a silly, giddy goof :)
"My streak will NEVER end!" adds proudly rolling cracker Jack.
"Are you sure *I* am the youngest!" says upright Rudy to Zorro :)
Once we got Jack upright, it was time to return back on the French Gulch Trail. Come along for a glimpse of the fun on the way back. The only tracks you see on the trail were our "out tracks". A fun day with the fresh snow.

As usual, all smiles as we tow the human to the end of another wonderful skijor outing!
"Wheeee, we are so happy!" says the super fun trio!
