Is it me or is Zorro really PINNED to my chest :)
|"Just in case you forgot, PIN - I get the 'end of run' treats FIRST!" says Zorro|
pinning himself to my chest at the end of this morning's run.
"Funny big brother!' adds cute & patient Jack & Rudy :)
What do I mean by "new"? Well, technically we spent most of the morning on the upper elevation trails of Gold Run Nordic Center. But, the nordic center stopped grooming the trails over 1 week ago and we've received upwards of 12 inches of snow since then. So, what is usually groomed & fast trails was, instead, fresh powder backcountry-like trails. There was only one set of existing tracks in the new snow on these trails. Jack & Rudy took one look at the set track and said, "Pfft, we don't need no stinking set track - fresh tracks for us!"

as Jack & Rudy lay fresh tracks powering along the untouched
powder down the middle!
|"One for you, one for me!" says the squirrely kids.|
I should have read the body language as "just wildlife, not moose", but I
was still on guard when they first stopped like this :)
|POW go the powder twins as we continue to make our|
own trail and ignore the silly set track to our left :)

Eventually we came down from the upper elevation trails and onto the lower trails near trailheads and parking lots. As expected, the lower trails had seen a lot of traffic the last few days. No more fresh tracks but instead a packed trail to uncork the skijoring engine.
|Packed & fast - off we go!|
|Whee - the happy skijoring power three!|
2019/2020 Season to Date: 129 days on the trails covering 873.9 miles with 79,800 feet of elevation climbed.
