Love this cool shot of seemingly conjoined Jack & Rudy in a fast sprint tuck!

The conjoined hover huskies.

Naturally, for every "sprint tuck" there is a corresponding "sprint stretch" - still conjoined!

The conjoined Jack & Rudy skijor missile!

It was practically "night & day" between the light we had on this morning's skijor outing. We started in the sun in front of Rabbit Ears Peak. We then followed a great trail that goes along and then behind Rabbit Ears Peak. Once behind the peak, it was very dim as the morning sun had not come over the peak yet. The prior two photos are us skijoring behind the peak, thus the low lighting. Here's how different the lighting was from behind vs in front of the peak:

Same trail as above, just in the morning sun versus shaded from the morning sun.
What a night & day difference in lighting :)

Today's video highlight? Well, a beautiful minute of skijoring in the morning sun behind Jack & Rudy. Come along for a fun, fun ride. Wheeee!

[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Despite incredible trail conditions, we did have to pause once. You cannot ignore fresh moose tracks crossing the trail and heading into the trees!

"Moose went this way! Can we too?" asks the moosers.
If you look closely between Jack & Rudy, you can see the tracks continuing
in front of them and into the trees. Oh, my answer was, "No, we are
not following fresh moose tracks into the trees!!!

Morning sun, morning shade, made no difference to Jack & Rudy - they had a great, great time in all lighting :)

"Ready for end of run treats!" declares Jack.
"Don't forget me!!!!!" adds intense Rudy.

Beautiful morning: 9.6 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2022/2023 Season to Date: 22 days on the trails covering 173.5 miles with 14,800 feet of elevation climbed.
