The forecasts gave me little clue that we might wake up to about a foot of fresh powder. But we did! Shyla was ecstatic.
Everything was closed, including major roads and all schools and universities. Snow Day!
I was on my fat bike and Shyla was on her paws. She was faster than I was - but we both had fun!!
Snowbiking through a foot of fresh snow is really hard work and takes skill that is only gained by experience. I don't hesitate to take lots of breaks to play with Shyla when we have a powder day.
Shyla is still in that sweet part of life where her body can keep running and playing forever. She's our seventh Lab so life experience has taught me to seize these days and appreciate her incredible stamina and playfulness.
Despite it being very cold, we both had fun in the forest today. I love fat biking with Shyla because "play breaks" help me to pace myself as I start the process of packing down trails that we'll be using over the coming weeks. With this much new snow, I will incrementally pack down a little more trail each day.
