Sled Dog Fun

We had a great time following, passing and interacting with the dog sled teams from Good Times Adventures on the trails this morning!
A nice "head on pass" by a team.
"Hi guys! So much fun to see you!" declares giddy Zorro as 3 from the team give him a look too.
"Passing, all business!" says perfect pass Max!

We encountered the team in the prior photo for a head on pass and then we came upon a team paused on the trail. Time to jog by and exchange pleasantries...
"Coming through...." say my partners exchanging pleasantries with the 8-dog team
on the side of the trail as we pass by.

A head on pass, a paused pass by and then finally we found a team sprinting along the trail so we got to play "sled dog chase" - wheeee! It felt like we were a lot closer to the team than this photo does justice. Oh well, I have put an arrow pointing to the musher of the 8-dog team and you can squint and see the fuzzy butts in front of him too.
"Here we come! Zoom zoom zooooom!" declare speedy Max & Zorro.

Today's video clip goes with the prior photo. This is the video action of us playing "sled dog chase". Look closely down the center of the trail and you can see the 8-dog team we are chasing come in & out of view during the video clip.

What a fun morning interacting with the dog teams from Good Times!
"We had a GREAT day! So much fun!" exclaim my happy partner giving me an approving
look at a turnaround point on one of the day's trails.

  1. So many huskies!!♥ Looks so fun. I was snowshoing with my huskies yesterday and I walked almost 20 kilometers *faint* I´ve been looking for a creme (and brown) coloured husky like you have, the colour is so pretty ♥
