2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited.

PostSubject: Mesa Cortina Trail snow shoeing and some dog races   Mon Jan 24, 2011 5:28 pm

Now i did a cool my tracks thing on my phone (like Eddy) but for the life of me i can't get it off my phone! any ways this was Sierra and Jack's as well as my first time snow shoeing and we loved it! we went for 4.32 miles RT and it took us about 2.5-3hrs, we were at 9,106ft and went to 9,536ft, not a huge gain in elevation but on snowshoes that's all you need!
Claudia (who set the whole thing up)and JD with ginger, their friend Wendy, and us hit the trail just past 12:30ish on Sat. we got the 3 dogs geared up as well as ourselves and as you can see in the picture S&J started the hike with dog booties on, about 5 min in and knee deep snow all but 2 were off of them and only 2 were recovered, the frog hoping pulled them right off and i had those suckers strapped tight. Jack also got to sport his new ruff wear back pack! we spent the night in a Condo near by and Kate, Chris and Nikolai met us there that night with dinner we were all starving for! sunday morning we packed up and headed to winter park where we all watched our first dog sled races and skijoring race. it was so much fun! ok on to pictures and video, enjoy Smile

Claudia and Kate, post your pictures as well.


























Wendy, Me, the pups and JD






JD and Ginger lead the way to pack down the trail.

who is all tired from her hike!



Ginger chilling


so much for taking turns, guess they were thirsty!


Nikolai!


Jack and Ginger

on to the races!!!!





JD, me and wendy with the dogs












Ginger was ready to take off every time they passed us!


for some reason this was the only husky in the skijoring race and he would not pull her at the start!




poor jack did not want to go home Sad

and video, sorry it looks like shit something is wrong with my camera Sad

Awesome pics! I don't think I'm down with that snow slogging though. Jack looks like he's asking a lot of questions in those shots. HA!

Kind of makes me a bit sad that Huskies have been thrown to the side in racing of any sort. But I've also noticed how all of these "Alaskan Huskies" and mixes are starting to look like Huskies after a few generations. Maybe that's just me though?

There's a reason my dog isn't a sled dog (yet)... ropes, harnesses, people... he struggles. I was just standing there and he got himself all worked up and wrapped up.

Oh dog, can't a girl just enjoy her lunch in peace?!


And since Chris and I missed out on the fun Saturday, we went hiking down the Fraser River Trail later, after the sled dog races. I'll post some pics from that when I get home and back to my camera. :-)

I can't seem to post my pictures Crying or Very sad But Jen has some from my camera posted already.

It was a great weekend! Hopefully, we'll get together again for another snowshoeing day and Ken can make it the time!

Just a few more:
Here's me...proof I really was there - I was taking all the pictures, and of course, couldn't keep up with hubby and Jen. I turned around and headed back to the car while hubby and Jen probably went on for about another half hour before they headed back. The sad thing is, they got to the car about 15-20 minutes after I got back to the car...so she kicked my butt on the trail!




Nature shot along the trail:


Sled races:



Skijoring:



...and Loki, a 3 year old Malamute at 125 lbs. He was handsome, gentle, and lovable!

and his owner...
