Cruising along the Blue River Recreation Path connecting Breckenridge to Frisco this morning!

Providing great entertainment for the cars on Highway 9
between Breckenridge & Frisco.

Jack & Rudy love skijoring the recpath from Breckenridge to Frisco. The path mirrors the Blue River along the way and also mirrors Highway 9 going from Breckenridge to Frisco. We often get honks, waves and cheers from the cars seeing the powerful sled dogs towing me along. It was windy & snowy this morning, so the car windows were up; but we did get two "honks & waves" from two vehicles. Fun!

Jack was REALLY ready to go this morning. He loves this route! Rudy was ready too, just not as READY as Jack. Come along and watch the start to this morning's outing as Jack practically shoots out of a cannon to start the day. Whee!

Along with entertaining the cars on Highway 9, we get a bunch of other fun activities along the way. We have three bridge crossings as the recpath moves from one side of the Blue River to the other.

Jack & Rudy keeping stride as we cross over the Blue River.

The recpath intersects 3 roads along the way. The roads are plowed, of course, so I have to take my skis off to cross each time. Skis on/off requires stopping obviously. So, we get the usual from Jack & Rudy at each stop :)

Stop, drop and roll while I put my skis back on!

Then, as we get to the edge of Frisco, we pass by a VERY distracting stables. Jack & Rudy run on by, but not without paying close attention to the horses :)

"Hey, I'm still running!" demonstrates talented Jack inspecting the 
horses as he keeps going.

Finally, we get to enjoy end of run treats in the parking lot of the Frisco Nordic Center.

"You have our complete attention!" declares my cute partners.
