Starting out the day skijoring from Breckenridge to Frisco on the Blue River Recreation Path. Wheeee!
|Off we go for a wonderful skijor from Breckenridge to Frisco!|
The rec path follows the Blue River from Breckenridge to Frisco and, along the way, we get many opportunities to run alongside Highway 9 (which mirrors the river too) along the way. Here is one of our many flirts with the cars along the highway. The SUV to our right gave an approving honk and yelled, "Woo!" out the window to us :)

cars along Highway 9.
The rec path gets groomed and, every once in a while, you find yourselves the first tracks on a freshly groomed track. Fresh groom = zoom!
|First tracks on this stretch. Zoom!|
But, most of today found us laying fresh tracks in the light layer of new snow over the groomed trail:

the cars out on Highway 9.
Is that a stop sign ahead of us in the prior photo? Yes, indeed. Side roads turn off the highway and cross the rec path at 5 different points along the way to Frisco. At each crossing, I have to take my skis off, walk over the road and put the skis back on. Well, that means we stop 5 times....
|This is what happened at each of the 5 crossings :)|
"You futz with your skis, we'll roll snow angels!" declares the goofy kids.
As you see by the sign, we just crossed the road leading into the Breckenridge
Building Center from Highway 9.
But, in between the 5 road crossings, it was ENDLESS skijoring from Breckenridge to Frisco. Come along for a fun glimpse into the endless ride behind Jack & Rudy. Fun!

End of a very entertaining skijor and time for 'end of run' treats. I love how Jack & Rudy so politely yield to retired Zorro first at every end of run event.
|"Ready!" declares Zorro.|
"Of course we let him go first - he taught us EVERYTHING we know!"
adds patiently waiting Jack & Rudy.
