This weekend, Derek, Fire, Niagra, Eider, Amy, and I took out the puppies for a fun run on the frozen sloughs around the Chena River. Every now and then, it's fun to just take a small team out and explore the beautiful area of the Chena River Valley. The frozen sloughs remind me of country roads (hence the John Denver song in the video) as they meander through dense willow and spruce thickets. Beaver dams and tussock peninsulas separate the smooth, level roadways of the sloughs and ponds, making for exciting portages. Overall, lots of fun, and I'd say the puppies had a blast too!
