Nothing says happiness like a Siberian Husky with a face full of snow!!!
|"Aaahhh, pure pleasure!" says Rudy with a face full of snow.|
"I agree, let me dunk my head in the snow next!" adds approving Jack.
It was a day full of great views from the upper elevation trails at Breckenridge Nordic Center. There was a cool layer of clouds being illuminated by the morning sun with the snow capped mountains highlighted in every direction. Here's a fun wide angle shot of the clouds, sun and peaks:

At one point we get to a stretch with awesome endless views of the Rocky Mountains:

the rockies unfolds to our right.
Onward we continue as we are now flying by the Hallelujah Warming Hut with more snow capped peaks in the background:
|Zoom, zoom (that was Jack & Rudy's theme all day).|
Trail conditions were absolutely perfect this morning with a light layer of new snow atop groomed terrain. With temperatures below 10 F, Jack & Rudy were ready to go on forever. Come along and watch a minute of our endless galloping fun. Wheeee!

At one point, I paused the team momentarily to decide whether we should go right or left at a fork in the trails. Well, I stopped... :)
|"You stop, we 'stop, drop and roll'!" declares the snow rolling goofs.|
Even back at the trailhead for 'end of run' treats with Zorro and the mountains were still provided cool views:

We only had time for a short outing, but Jack & Rudy sure made use of all the time we had out on the trails! 7.9 miles traveled with 800 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 26 MPH.
2020/2021 Season to Date: 88 days on the trails covering 711.6 miles with 62,400 feet of elevation climbed.
