Our final skijor of the 2019/2020 Season this morning, June 1st, for Zorro's 12th birthday!
|"Happy 12th Birthday Zorro!" say Jack, Rudy and myself to happy|
Zorro awaiting today's 'end of run' treats!
Today was a slightly less than average June 1st outing. We were able to find a nice extended patch of snow atop Rabbit Ears Pass to skijor but the patch was only about 1/2 mile long. We did an "out & back" on this 1/2 mile stretch with the trio, Zorro, Jack and Rudy. We then dropped elder Zorro off with Nancy with the intent of going further with the kids, Jack & Rudy. But, we were confined to the same 1/2 mile stretch as we ran out of snow and into wide, fast running creeks and rivers on all sides. So, the day's total outing was an "out & back" with the threesome and then another "out & back" with the kids.
Oh well, it was still Toes on Snow on June 1st for Zorro's 12th Birthday! Yay!

look at how bumpy it is off trail to our right and left!

Finally, a shot of the happy trio ending our initial "out & back" with the entire team:

A fun little 2 mile skijor to celebrate Zorro's 12th birthday with a skijor in June!
That brings us to a conclusion of the 2019/2020 Skijor Season. We had an interesting and entertaining season balancing Zorro approaching 12 years old with Jack & Rudy maturing into professionals in the prime of their lives. A great time was had by all as Jack & Rudy eclipsed 1200 miles of skijoring for the season. Meanwhile Zorro came along for every outing but only participated in a portion of most runs as he happily hung with Nancy before and/or after his stint while the kids and I went out for more exercise. As you witnessed from the happy, happy faces in the posts all season long, a great time was had by all!!!
