Jack and Rudy practicing & perfecting "rolling synchronized snow angels" :)
|Synchronized snow angels.|
Synchronized comical, young goofballs :)
Aside from practicing (and perfecting) synchronized snow angels, we decided to skijor this morning too. We started with elder Zorro in the team on the Buffalo Park Trail at Rabbit Ears Pass. The beginning of Buffalo Park is a vast & wide meadow. The meadow was completely snow covered with a solid spring crust to start the morning. The surface was a little bumpy (from repeated thaw every day and refreeze every night); but was still perfect for May 7th. Zorro, Jack & Rudy decided to make use of the wide terrain by testing the left-to-right limits of the gangline:
|This is just about as far apart at the trio can get within the|
confines of their gangline. How polite of them to separate wide
so as to provide a wide angle view of the terrain as well :)
|Back together as the fast & tight team as Zorro takes the middle to lead|
us to the end of his portion of the skijor.
|The conditions - wow! Snow covered & firm crust as far as the eye can see!|
The youngsters - cool! Flying Jack on the left with hovering Rudy to the right.

Those are some pretty incredible photos and cool video for May 7th. But, we must admit that summer is really hovering just around the corner. The "signs of summer" will start to show more and more as we proceed through May - boo! But, YAY for such incredible conditions for this morning's May 7th.
|Oh my - those "signs of summer" to our right as a fast flowing|
"snow melt river" is rushing by!
|"Me first - ready!" declares Zorro.|
"Me next!' adds focused Jack.
"Whee, I'm happy, happy number three!' says patiently waiting Rudy!
