Look at this wide angle shot of the endless spring crust atop Rabbit Ears Pass!!!
|Flying Jack & Rudy with a solid spring crust as far as the eye can see!|
After that impressive wide angle shot above, how about an impressive closeup of the power kids?
|Can't you just feel the POWER in the Rudy missile in this photo!|
Look at those ears tucked in tight as he's transformed into a sleek missile!
Impressive hover from powerful Jack, too; but, oh my, doesn't
Rudy look like a powerful missile!

A little more fun from the fantastic day. Here we are cruising by the Rabbit Ears Pass SNOTEL. SNOTELs are science stations spread throughout the areas of common snowpack in the United States. The devices report a myriad of measurements about the terrain around them for planning, forecasting and studying snow and, thus, upcoming water to be present throughout the country. The most interesting measurement to us is the "snow depth". As of this morning, this device reported a 65 inch snow depth at this location. Woo Hoo, over 5 feet of snowpack in late April!
|"Hi SNOTEL - we like your 65 inch report!" says the fun kids|
cruising on by.
Fast & fun photos & videos above. But, I was with the Jack & Rudy clowns remember. Oh those kids during a quick pause in the outing:
|Stop, Drop and ROLL!!!!!! demonstrates the goofy kids.|
|Whee, we've added super fun Z!|
Another shot of the perfect crust this morning.
So, here we go with Zorro & Jack in a synchronized long jump over a snowmobile track. One fun thing to note - Jack is actually slightly taller (and bigger) than Zorro but Zorro looks huge next to him in this photo. Why the "large Zorro" mirage? Well, it is the height of Zorro's long jump that makes him look so big. Not only is he a long jump expert, but he gets the most impressive height too!
|Flying Zorro leaping high & over the snowmobile track.|
Still learning Jack is simply long jumping, he hasn't mastered height yet :)
Rudy the Tank simply busting over the track ;)
|"So much fun this morning!" says the happy, happy trio.|
