With March rains washing away winter, we wanted to take the dogs out for possibly one of our last snow packed trail runs of the season. The trail however, was something that we hadn’t met via dogsled before – solid ice disguised as beautiful snow! The combination of slick trails and the dogs’ sixth sense of spring, led to a FAST rookie adventure today – clocked at 21mph… all caught on our new Go Pro! Uh Oh!
Sorry fellow Minnesotans, I am praying for more snow… we can’t end the season with 2 crashes caught on camera!
Three weeks into dog mushing and I’m in desperate need of ten new fingernails and a live-in masseuse. It’s become clear that hilly, tree-lined trails are not a rookie dog sledders friend! So when we found a nice dogsledding loop with gentle rolling hills, my back, neck, and cuticles were relieved. Beautiful Lake Byllesby, located in south-central Minnesota, offers wide trails without overgrown branches to knock you off your sled. Not that it would ever happen… three times in one day nonetheless! 😉 Although the husband and I are getting better every time we’re out, another clarity has come to our attention – our children are naturals! *Video proof!
