Endless Tracks

We found a set of snowmobile tracks to follow for miles & miles & miles at Harrison Creek atop Rabbit Ears Pass this morning.  Zoom!

A pair of snowmobile tracks making for an endless skijor
with Jack & Rudy this morning!

We were on the same trail this morning as yesterday. But, yesterday we were first tracks on the trail laying fresh tracks and breaking trail for an aerobic workout. This morning, though, we found a set of snowmobile tracks on the same trail. So, we switched from yesterday's "trail setting aerobics" to an endless marathon following the set tracks today.

Nice shot of flying Jack & Rudy with some nice views of the rest
of Colorado below at to our right.

There are still early season hazards sprinkled throughout the terrain. But, Jack & Rudy are perfect at navigating around hazards. I rarely have to say anything as they automagically pick the right path to avoid hazards.

Yikes, look at that early season puddle hazard!
Yay for Jack & Rudy automatically drifting far left to avoid the hazard
and keep the human on skis moving along!

Today's video highlight? Well, a fun glimpse into our endless skijor following this pair of snowmobile tracks for miles and miles. Wheeee!

[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

We did stop twice today. Once was to turnaround...

"Turnaround = roll around!" demonstrates the silly kids.
Nice face full of snow Jack!

Our second stop? Well, moose tracks!!!!!

"Must pause to inspect the forest for moose!" declares Jack &  Rudy
pausing to glare into the trees where a moose had crossed and exited
the trail recently.

What a fun outing this morning, just ask Jack & Rudy!

"Fun, fun, fun!" says the happy kids.
"How about those treats?" suggests focused Zorro.

A nice, long outing following snowmobile tracks all morning long: 10.6 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH.

2021/2022 Season to Date: 9 days on the trails covering 65.7 miles with 6400 feet of elevation climbed.
