Gorgeous bluebird morning for a skijor atop Rabbit Ears Pass!
|Gorgeous morning, beautiful trail, flying sled dogs! Wheeee!|
We spent this morning skijoring around Rabbit Ears Peak. It is an impressive peak that stands out from just about every viewpoint atop the pass.

Come along for the fun video counterpart to the prior photo. If you can take your attention off Jack & Rudy, the mountain upper/left from Jack & Rudy is Rabbit Ears Peak. The two rocks atop the peak are the ears for which Rabbit Ears Peak (and Rabbit Ears Pass) gets its name. Nice view of the peak as we cruise along this great trail.

As we continued cruising along, the peak came into view again head-on instead of to our left:
|Jack & Rudy still zipping along :)|
Rabbit Ears Peak and its "rock formation ears" dead ahead!
Today's comedy moment from the kids is an interesting conjoined snow angel. Here we have Rudy's head and body with Jack's legs. No Jack body or Rudy legs, just a Rudy body with Jack's legs. Silly kids

Back to the trailhead and we were able to meet Zorro and Nancy up trail from the Jeep. Time to line up with Zorro and trot back to the Jeep with our original skijor mentor:
|Yay, Love to trot with elder Zorro!!!!|
