Beautiful bluebird morning to take in the views skijoring along Boreas Pass.
|Nice view of fast moving Jack & Rudy in front of me.|
Pretty view of the snow covered Rocky Mountains to our left.
We started the outing early this morning in the shade of Boreas Mountain, but the sun had just peeked over the top of the mountain to shine on the mountains across the valley from us, as you see in this nice photo:
|Jack, Rudy & I in the shade of the mountain while Breckenridge Ski Resort|
is visible in the sun across the valley.
On the way back down, the sun was everywhere. Such a pretty morning!

into view across the valley again.
As you can see from the photos, Boreas Pass Road is still open to 4wd vehicles. It will close to vehicles for the winter on Nov 28th. But, we've had a very cold week, so the traffic on the road has not done too much damage. Come along and watch Jack & Rudy towing me along the fast packed Boreas trail. Whee!

The comedians, Jack & Rudy, had this skit to offer at our turnaround point high up on Boreas Pass :)
|"Turnaround... Roll around!" demonstrates silly Jack.|
"Turnaround... Woo aloud!" bellows wooing Rudy.
Back to the trailhead and we were again back in the shade. Nancy's camera is a cheap toy we got years ago, it does not handle "low light" very well...
|Fun kids awaiting end of run treats.|
Not a very crisp photo from the cheapo camera in low light :)
