Dogsledding in Ely

Michelle and I went to Wintergreen Lodge on Sunday for a day of dogsledding. So here are a few pictures of a fun filled day!

One of the new additions to Wintergreen! There were four pups that were four days old.

O'Ryan, Thor, Dixie, Knud and Ellwood took us approx 20 miles.

Whether it was going across the frozen lake or over bumps in the swamp and the beaver dams or ducking trees in the woods, laughter rang out clearly and loudly. All muscles in the body were worked and were sore for several days after, but the gut hurt the worst because of all the laughing. A beautiful day, in the higher 20's and clear skies, so when taking a lunch break we just had to walk around and take some pictures of the beauty of nature. This pic was taken right outside of the lodge where we ate and where we later relaxed before heading home.

What a fun time Jen! Am glad you were able to go.
Am planning on being adventurous on Sunday and going to catch the unoffical start of the Iditarod. It is the "real" start on Sunday in Willow. The ceremonial start is Saturday in Anchorage. Hoping to make it and not be frozen near to death by the time we get back ... and get some great pictures!
Thanks for posting yours .. makes me want to get out there even more!
