 I think Jack & Rudy had a great time skijoring today, don't you agree?

"I am having a BLAST!" exclaims ecstatic Rudy!
"Me too, me too! Whee!" adds happy Jack.

We skijored upper trails of Breckenridge Nordic Center today and took a path that gave us lots of great views of the mountain peaks. But, before we get to the view, we need to do our pre-workout stretches as the trailhead while I put my skis on:

Pre-workout stretches from the goofballs.

I've mentioned this before; but, yes, Jack & Rudy often roll snow angels BEFORE we start running (as well as at turnaround time to cool off). It must be a pre-workout stretch for them. Silly kids!

Okay, on to the day's views of the peaks. Here we go with Peak 9 and Peak 10 of Breckenridge Ski Resort. Draw a line straight up from Rudy's right ear and that is Peak 10. To the right of that, the hump between the two trees is the top of Peak 9.

Zooming along as peaks 9 & 10 come into view.

Further along and we transitioned to a different trail further out and higher up than the previous photo. Now we get a view of Peak 6, Peak 7 and Peak 8 of Breckenridge Ski Resort. The upper right with the solo tree sticking up is the top of Peak 6. Draw a line straight up from Jack's tail and that is the top of Peak 7. Slightly to the left of that and you have the top of Peak 8.

Still zooming as we now have peaks 6, 7 and 8 in view.

Eventually we dipped back down into the trees. With no pretty peaks to gaze at, we might as well floor it and skijor fast through the forest. Come along for a video glimpse of the fun :)

Back to the trailhead and a very satisfied Jack & Rudy with our morale leader Zorro:

"You have my full attention!" declares Zorro.
"So much fun today!" exclaims Jack & Rudy.

A zippy, zooming day cruising around the nordic center and taking in all the peaks: 8.6 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2020/2021 Season to Date: 51 days on the trails covering 399.9 miles with 35,700 feet of elevation climbed. Almost to 400 miles for the season :)
