Rabbit tracks across the trail at Rabbit Ears Pass!

"Sniff, sniff, these are fresh!" states track inspecting Jack.
"I think the rabbits went this way!" adds track inspecting Rudy.

Normally Jack & Rudy do not pay much attention to rabbit tracks we encounter out on the trails. But, these tracks must have been VERY fresh to get this much attention from them. Despite some intense sniffing and scanning all direction, we failed to see any actual rabbits. Bummer :)

While the rabbit tracks were entertaining, what was even better was laying fresh tracks in 1-2 inches of fresh snow on otherwise wide & packed snowmobile trails all morning long! Only a snowmobile or two had been on these trails since the fresh snowfall. That meant we still had plenty of untouched snow on the wide trails to enjoy all morning long. Jack & Rudy were having a blast laying fresh tracks!

Zipping along in the fresh snow on the right side of the trail. Wheeee!

Everywhere we went today was the same thing: plenty of untouched snow for a wonderful Fresh Tracks Tuesday:

lots of fresh snow to enjoy!

It was really incredible how few snowmobiles had been out before us. Such perfect fresh snow conditions!

snowmobile track far to our left.

As you probably expected by now, today's video highlight is, you guessed it, laying fresh tracks in a shallow layer of fresh snow. Come along and see for yourself. Wheeee!

Of course, all that zipping around laying fresh tracks means you really enjoy rolling snow angels to cool off at any pause during the outing:

Rub a dub dub, synchronized snow angels from the comedians :)

How was it out on the trails today guys?

"Wonderful, we had a blast! Now how about those end of run treats?" replies
the fun, focused kids.
