New Year

New year, same antics at a break on the trail :)

I paused briefly at the Hallelujah Warming Hut to check our time out
on the trails. Well, I paused... "Stop, Drop & ROLL!" demonstrates my
goofball partners.

New year, same results on fresh, untouched snow on great trails :)

Zoom! Laying fresh tracks in about an inch of fresh snow.
Nice views to our right too!

New year, same kids distracted by rodents under the snow :)

Uh, guys, look at that beautiful, untouched trail in front of us!
"Rodents... Busy... Be with you in a second!" reply my hunters
searching for rodents that clearly caught their attention under the snow.

We spent the morning cruising around the upper elevation trails at Breckenridge Nordic Center. As you see in the photo above, we were first on the trail with 1-2 inches of fresh snow. We did not see another soul the first 75% of our outing. The only tracks we came across were our own when redoing sections of trail! It wasn't until we got back near the trailhead that we encountered any tracks other than our own all morning long! Fun!

Riding along the track we set on the way out on this trail.
Oh, that is Peak 6 of Breckenridge Ski Resort in the foreground.

Come along for some video fun. Ride behind Jack & Rudy as they tow me along this high elevation trail near treeline. As I mentioned before, the tracks you see in the snow are our own "out tracks" on this same trail. Wheeee!

[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

New year, same happy kids sharing 'end of run' treats with me at the trailhead!

Such happy, fun partners!
Another nice mountain view in the background if you can take your
eyes of handsome Jack & Rudy :)
