My lame pack decided to not do trail clearing, but rather head west to Twin Lakes to see if the snow was deep enough for bounding. I did that while they skied their usual pace: slow.
|Snow was looking better up in the high country.|
|The ski trail is behind the DNR garage.|
I've met the friendly DNR staff before.
|Hey! Looks pretty good to me.|
|Let's go! The trail is this way!|
|Oh, the snow is good up here.|
|This is my favorite early season snow romping spot.|
|All paw drive does require occasional maintenance.|
|After hunting off-trail, I join them for a bit...|
|...ya, I blew right past her.|
|I could leap and bound in this stuff all day.|
|Which way shall we go?|
|I smell a mouse!|
|I'm a water dog you know.|
|And this is Lake Superior water.|
|I take a break now and then.|
No problem for a winter dog to relax in the snow.
|We stop for snacks, as usual. I'm on the left!|
|Trails needs some maintenance...|
|You can see that the wind blew from the west.|
|Lake effect snow does this.|
|I hope we ski again real soon!|
