Fast Packed

Happy kids flashing me a smile at a momentary pause this morning.

"We're having a blast!" declares the happy kids.

We spent the morning doing laps on the fast packed trail along Dumont Lake at Rabbit Ears Pass. The trail had been well traveled by snowmobiles and SUVs and was very fast packed! How fast, well Jack & Rudy were airborne with speed today :)

Nice of Jack & Rudy to hover out of the shade and into the sun to showcase
their hover husky abilities.

Second lap back/forth by Dumont Lake, a little cloud cover this pass; but same result from Jack & Rudy:

Yep, still zooming along. Hey look, the upper left is Rabbit Ears Peak with
the two rocks atop being the ears of Rabbit Ears Pass.

Come along for a video ride along the thin cover near Dumont Lake this morning. But, it was enough cover to uncork the skijoring engine and fast packed for Jack & Rudy to fly! If you can take your eyes off impressive Jack & Rudy, the peak in the upper left that is coming in/out of view is Rabbit Ears Peak and the rocks on top are the ears of Rabbit Ears Pass. Wheeee!

After the fast packed laps near the lake, we got an unexpected treat to finish the run on a lesser used side trail. Woo Hoo fresh powder to finish the morning run!

Powder poofs!

Zorro! Thanks for coming to pick us up!

"You can rely on me!" states focused Zorro.
"I'm ready too!" adds happy Jack.
"Am I still third?!?" ponders Rudy.

A fast packed 7.6 miles with 500 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH near Dumont Lake this morning.

2021/2022 Season to Date: 15 days on the trails covering 111.4 miles with 10,300 feet of elevation climbed.
