 Cool shot of the morning clouds atop the mountains in front of us:

Jack & Rudy in the foreground.

We had some appointments to make this morning so started our skijor just after sunrise. We did a quick out & back at Breckenridge Nordic Center. On the return leg we were skijoring into the morning sunrise, making for some cool sun shots:

"Hello big sun!" rising over the mountain in front of us.
A nice shot of airborne Jack & Rudy as we fly by the Kathy's Viewpoint
warming hut.

A little further along, a little more sun:

Same mountain as the prior photo but a slightly different angle.
The big morning sun is now a few degrees higher than the last photo.
Jack & Rudy flying by the Hallelujah Warming Hut this time :)

Today's video fun: starting in the morning shade then finishing in the morning sun after we round a bend in the trail. Impressive Jack & Rudy FLYING by the oncoming skier we encounter. Turn up your volume about 32 seconds in and you can hear me driving my skis into the snow to maintain pace with Jack & Rudy as we round a bend on fast packed terrain - working the human!

[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Flying on fast trails means you really need to cool the jets at turnaround time :)

"Rolling, rolling, cooling the jets!" demonstrates the snow rolling twins.
We drifted off trail a bit to get in some deeper snow to roll in.

It seems that since Rudy turned three (December 29th) that I've been getting a dual happy face shot from Jack & Rudy every outing! The dual shots were rare before the 29th as one or both of them were usually rolling instead of smiling. But, the two mature three year olds are now flashing their dual smiles daily:

Those beautiful, synchronized, happy faces!

As usual, ending the day with our favorite elder, Zorro:

Group party = fun group shot :)
