Loading up. The sled was full of food etc for the cabin.
Kona was pretty amped to come along, but given the number of mushers in the area, encounters with sled dogs can get messy.
Pretty awesome day for February. Trail started out very well packed, but quickly deteriorated to s-l-o-w.
Not that I'm complaining, but dog sled trails fall far down the list of good winter riding conditions. The brakes create soft grooves which tear up the snow and grab the front tire. But its a dog sled trail, so what can you expect? Beats not riding.
Finally got onto the Alligator Lake trail, which was very far up the list of good conditions. Perfect in fact.
Made it out to where the Watson trail branches off, but the trail has not been used recently, and has several inches of unpacked snow on it. I went a few hundred meters down it, but turned around. It needs some traffic to get it rideable.
Lots of this on the way back..........
