We're Officially On Sleds!

 One of my favorite sections of trail. Windy, narrow- a hidden hideaway.

We've had a fantastic start to winter this year with lots of snow! Last year we were still training on ATVs for another month! I remember thinking, there's a reason we call them sled dogs and not quad dogs. Well this year, we've been fortunate enough to have lots of snow early, and we already have the ability to run larger teams on a sled. It doesn't get much better!

This morning for the first time, we have some colder temperatures in the -15F to -20F range. A few more days of these temps, and the rivers will freeze. Then we'll be in business!

When not training dogs, we're working on the cabins. On the handler cabin, the rafters are up, so the next step is the tin. We're hoping to finish up the handler cabin in the next week!
