Oh those silly kids breaking out into an unauthorized playfest on the trails once again :)
|"Tag! You're it!!!!" performs silly Jack.|
"Coming right back at you!" declares play bowing Rudy.
We had a dusting of new snow overnight. All I need is a little bit of new snow for control for us to be able to skijor the fast & steep trails on Baldy Mountain. So, with the overnight dusting, it was off to Baldy we went. Wheeee!
|You can just make out the dust kicking up behind flying Jack.|
Notice the snowflake you see against the base of Rudy's tail.
Consider this snowflake your foreshadow of the day.
After a fast warmup lap around Baldy, we dipped into the backcountry to connect from Baldy Mountain to Boreas Mountain.
|The backcountry connector trails are always a fun & peaceful|
glide through the forest.
Back to the initial warmup lap on Baldy. Come along and watch the fast & fun kids flying along. Notice the light snowfall you see starting to come down around us. That is your second foreshadow of the day :)

What we were foreshadowing? Well, how about it dumping snow once we connected onto Boreas. It was a fun jog along Boreas in heavy falling snow. The storm that was supposed to arrive last night finally arrived a little late this morning! Yay for snow!
|Heavy snow coming down all around us.|
Yay for snow!!!!
Back to the trailhead to meet up with Nancy and Zorro. It was a very busy Saturday at the Boreas trailhead with tons of people and a few loose dogs running every which way. Well, we don't share our 'end of run' treats with anyone except ourselves! So, it was into the back of the Jeep before handing out the rewards!
|Fun closeup of the focused trio awaiting 'end of run' treats after|
loading into the back of the Jeep first. Such an accommodating trio!
