I Want to Go

Catching air skijoring Rabbit Ears Pass with Zorro - wheeee!
Airborne Zorro as we zip along the packed snowmobile trails at Rabbit Ears.
Today we feature silly little Jack - our adorable puppy who REALLY wants to come skijoring with Zorro and I. Jack gets to come to the trailhead to send us off and then meets us at the end of our runs. In just a matter of a few outings, Jack has gone from "watching us start" to bucking up & down declaring "I want to go too!!!!!" as Zorro and I take off. He is still too young to come along; but he is certainly giving all indications that he will take off with us once we hook him up!!!!
"Let me go! Let me go! I want to go too!!!!!!" declares bucking bronco Jack as Zorro and
I start the days run. Nancy is getting a good workout holding Jack back :)
Out of sight of the silly puppy and Zorro and I opened it up as we cruised the trails near the offiical Rabbit Ears Pass Marker. Come along and watch as we zip along the packed snowmobile trails as the Rabbit Ears Marker comes into view on our right (the large rock that appears in the video). There is a plaque on the other side of the marker from our approach that declares this the official geographical point of Rabbit Ears Pass.
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Skijoring done and back to silly little Jack. We cannot stop laughing about how much skijor outings wear him out! He "participates" at the beginning and end of the runs and then goes for a gentle walk with Nancy in between. So, Zorro and I run while Jack waddles; but Jack always seems to be the most tired at the end of every skijor outing :)  Jack's favorite "post skijor" activity: curling up on Zorro and passing out :)
"Phew, EXHAUSTED!" demonstrates little Jack curling up on Zorro to rest from the day's
big outing. Zorro lays down to rest too; but it is hilarious that little Jack immediately curls
up on Zorro and passes out!
Another fun day running the trails at Rabbit Ears Pass, right Zorro?
"Yes, fun indeed!!!!" states happy Z!
Today's outing was a short & easy route. It is mostly flat or downhill with one little uphill rise. A perfect short run to put on back of yesterday's long run: 4.7 miles traveled with 200 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 17 MPH.

2017/2018 Season to Date: 9 days on the trails covering 62.5 miles with 5900 feet of elevation climbed.
