I’ve been meaning to post these pictures for a long time (as a matter of fact, since Christmas!) and I figured I should at least post a few before we leave for our summer Alaska vacation.
Our first day in AK, we got to go dog mushing. I’ve been many times before (because we had a team when I was in 6th grade) but this was the first ride for Nik and for Ellie. Drew and Rachel have two sled dogs plus they borrowed a few more. It’s been at least 15 years since I was on a sled. I’d forgotten how exhilarating it is and also how incredibly cold the wind gets. I love the sounds of the dogs straining at their harnesses with excitement, wanting to Go! Go! GO!
Drew was kind enough to be the driver for most of us. His cheeks were certainly the coldest of everyone’s!
And finally, a short video of Nik and Eric’s ride:
