Nice wide angle shot of Jack & Rudy galloping along nice snow up high with vast views of the rest of "snowless Colorado" below and to our right :)
|Whee - still perfect up here; but look at the endless brown & green to our right.|
Yikes, the snow is really melting!
The result? SUCCESS!!!! After the quick climb from the start, this trail eventually levels out on an upper elevation shelf 100s of feet in elevation above the trailhead. Here is a nice shot of the incredible conditions once we crested from the initial climb. Beautiful!!!
|Firm snow and fast Jack & Rudy having a great time on the beautiful|
upper elevation conditions!
|Wide open and perfect, endless crust once you climbed up high enough!|
|"Stop, Drop and ROLL!!!!!" says the goofball kids rolling their usual snow|
angels at any stop point.
Nice view "snowless Colorado" in front and below us.
|"You took too long - Stop, Bow & Play!" demonstrates the goofs transitioning|
from snow angel rolling to play bow silliness :)
Come along for a glimpse into the day's fun. We start out in the shade on a somewhat bumpy trail until we transition into the open sun where the terrain smooths out. Despite how much the camera (and, thus, me) are bouncing, it really wasn't a hard trail to ski. I just rode the dips behind my skijoring engines as they towed me along.

Another successful day exercising the youngsters, Jack & Rudy, while giving elder Zorro most of the day off. A perfect outing for all results in 'end of run' treats for all :)
|"Ready, ready, ready!" says the focused & happy trio.|
