Jack is very proud to announce that he doesn't roll a snow angel at EVERY break point on the trails!

"See, I can stay upright! Sometimes!" states proud Jack.
"Rub a dub dub!" adds snow angel rolling Rudy.

Well, I don't know about that Jack... Today was Jack's 409th skijor of his young life. He had rolled at least one snow angel on 408 straight skijor outings leading up to today. Are you fooled by Jack in the prior photo?

Nope. 409 straight outings with at least one snow angel roll from Jack :)

Our second pause of the day. There's my Jack :)
"Hey, two stops is WAY too many to not roll at least once!" adds goofy Jack.
"Like I said before, rub a dub dub!" contributes silly Rudy.

Outside of the silly kids rolling snow angels, it was a wonderful fast & fun skijor at Breckenridge Nordic Center this morning. Here's a cool shot of fast running Jack & Rudy with peaks 6, 7, 8 and 9 of Breckenridge Ski Resort in the foreground:

Fast kids! Wheeee!
Peak 6 straight up from Jack. Peak 7 up and slightly left of Rudy.
Peak 8 just left of the tall tree in the upper center.
Peak 9 to the left of 8.

A little further along and hovering Jack & Rudy as Peak 10 of Breckenridge Ski Resort comes into view (the ski runs of the resort span the mountains of Peak 6 through 10).

Top of Peak 10 straight up from Rudy. Wheeee!

How fast and fun today? Well, come along for another wild cornering sprint to the end of this morning's skijor. Jack & Rudy are flying around the corners while I am skiing my hardest and leaning into the skis to keep with them. Then, a fast final descent to the day until everyone slows perfectly to transition onto the narrow "exit ramp" from the trail. Super fun whipping around the corners with Jack & Rudy coupled with an impressive "slow to save the human" ending!

Great shot to end the day. Zorro and Nancy parked at one end of the trailhead parking area and came to meet us at the trail. Retired Zorro was cute & frisky to jog back to the Jeep alongside Jack & Rudy to take us all to our 'end of run' treats!

Jack & Rudy still attached to me, Zorro attached to Nancy.
All three jogging in unison to lead us back to the Jeep.

Another zipping & zooming day from Jack & Rudy: 8.3 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 24 MPH.

2020/2021 Season to Date: 79 days on the trails covering 634.1 miles with 55,900 feet of elevation climbed.
