This Christmas, Derek, the dogs, and I headed to the White Mountain Recreation Area for a relaxing training run and campout. In the trailhead parking lot, we recognized a couple other dog trucks belonging to Two Rivers dog mushers. And this is Christmas day, mind you. Yep, rather than spending Christmas in the traditional fashion, mushers were hitting the trails and spending the holiday with their canine family. It's an obsession, what can we say? Maybe Patsy and Ed Bruce should have named their song "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Mushers". At least the tune fits pretty well with the video.
