A fast (albeit very bumpy in areas) skijor atop Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.
|Flying along behind out-stretched and sprinting Zorro. Wheeee!|
Zorro and I had a great time using all the snow still holding up on Rabbit Ears Pass.
We enjoyed rolling snow angels (well, ok, Zorro rolled, I did not :)
|"Aaahhhhh, feels soooooo good!" declares snow-rolling Zorro.|
|"So much fun on the 'Rabbit Ears Snow Cache'!" exclaims happy Zorro.|
The rock formation in the upper left of the photo are the 'ears' from which Rabbit Ears is named.
Come and watch as Zorro and I zip along the trails to finish the day's run. But, also watch as I (i.e., the camera) am bouncing up and down as I struggle to keep pace with sprinting Zorro as he tows me over and through the bumps. Boy did my legs get quite the workout today :)

Back to the finish and Jack joined us for our "end of run" celebration. Everyone look at Nancy and say cheeeese:
|"Hi mom! When will this kid be big enough to help tow this human?" asks Zorro.|
"Hi mom! When do I get to run too?!?" asks Jack.
Soon Jack, soon.....
