Gibbs and Marley are ready!
Kevin and the pups on the overlook
After the climb up the ski hill road, we're about to enter the nice trail to the right to begin the journey.
Dawgz appreciate the snow...
Looking down from Lake Peak to the lake
Gibbs on the knife edge trail with Penitente in the background
Gibbs and Marley love running in the mountains
Looking beyond to Baldy
Kevin and Gibbs take a short break
Peeking over the knife edge towards the west and the Jemez
This is a nice trail with a dropoff to the right
Pups found some snow to cool off in
Santa Fe Baldy
Another nice trail leading over to Penitente Peak
That ridge to the right comes off Penitente, which we'll be running down soon into those trees.
Wicked windy today!
A nice snow drift on the up approach to Penitente Peak.
It covered the trail, so we had to just go down below it.
Gibbs and Marley trying to get out of the wind, which was reported to be near 70mph
Sitting in the windbreak now looking North, I believe
This was supposed to be a video of the dawgz and Kevin running around the snowfield, but alas...the camera I used sucks
An exxample of some of the snow we encountered in the trees on the trail down to the Windsor trail to Baldy.
This was easily 5 feet deep!
In the wind on the ridgeline approach to Baldy.
We unfortunetly ran into a couple with an aggressive dog off leash that attacked Gibbs, so we turned around.
Wish I had some pepper spray....for the owner, not the dog!
