The super trio towing me to the finish of this morning's fun run.
Whee - smiles all around!!!
We did a split run at Rabbit Ears Pass similar to yesterday. The kids, Jack & Rudy, and I went out for the first 1/2 and then we met up with Zorro & Nancy to add elder Zorro to the team for the second 1/2 of the outing.

The kids & I did a fast run out & back on the Harrison Creek snowmobile trail. It was fast packed and zooming conditions:
Rudy the sled dog missile on the left.
Jack the hovering sled dog on the right :)
As I said, the kids and I did an "out & back", check out this rare photo:
"See, we CAN turnaround without rolling snow angels, we just
prefer to stop, drop & roll most of the time!" declares the happy
and surprisingly upright silly kids.
Almost all of the way back the Harrison Creek Trail we took a left to connect to the Walton Peak trails and meet up with Zorro and Nancy:
"Whee, we've added Z!" demonstrates the fast trio.
Come along for our pickup and start with Zorro. The clip starts with everyone waiting for me to get myself set. Then an, "Ok, let's go guys!" from me and zoom - out we go up the main Walton Peak Trail. Fun guys!

After going a little ways up the main trail, we abandoned trails altogether and skijored around the vast spring crust all over Walton Peak:
Love when we can make our own path across vast meadows
of spring crust!
We did an "out & back" on Walton Peak with Zorro. So, the second turnaround of the day for the kids and, well, they're back :)
"Oh these children!" says happy Zorro waiting for the kids' antics to end.
"Oh come on, TWO turnarounds in one outing, what did you expect!" states giddy Jack.
"Impossible to remain upright TWICE in one day!" adds flat Rudy.
Once we got the silly kids upright, it was back to the trailhead to run on by Nancy to end the fun outing:
"Hi mom, bye mom!" says the fast trio towing me on by
Nancy on the side of the trail.
A peaceful day cruising around Rabbit Ears Pass all by ourselves: 7.1 miles traveled with 600 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 20 MPH.

2019/2020 Season to Date: 123 days on the trails covering 835.0 miles with 76,000 feet of elevation climbed.
