Having a good time (actually a GREAT time) running with the dog sled teams from Good Times Adventures this morning!
|Letting a team pass by at a trail intersection. "Hi friends - we want to come too!!!" say|
Max & Zorro flirting with their friends.
We encountered three different dog sled teams to play with on the trails this morning. The first was a team we saw go down a trail in front of us. I held back my partners to give them a head start and then off we flew in chase:
|Flying Max & Zorro as you see the blue pants/white coat of the musher in front of us and|
you can barely make out the 8 sled dogs pulling this person along.
|Cruising along the upper trail as you see the team & musher taking a hard right in front of us.|
I was impressed with this musher's skills as he navigated this tight turn perfectly without
tipping the sled!
Anyway, back to the first photo... Once I got Max & Zorro under control (versus joining the team passing by), we gave this team a head start on the trail and then proceeded to play chase & catch. Watch the fun video clip below as it looks like we are alone sprinting on the trail. But, watch closely, as the team we let pass by in the first photo begins to come into view in front of us. Max, Zorro & I continue to gain ground on this dog sled team until the end of the video where I call out a "right" to Max & Zorro. Wheeee!
