After three weeks of not running due to the cold...-30 is my cut-off, colder than that we stay home, we finally got out yesterday.
Untracked snow is beautiful, but it's alot of work! Trail breaking is tiring!
There had been a snowmobile out on the lake so that section was a bit easier on both me and the dogs. Contrary to popular belief, there is very little standing on the runners letting the dogs do all the work involved in mushing, especially when breaking a trail!
All that fluffy, yet heavy snow, did make for a chance to get a picture of the team from the front. I flipped the sled on it's side...the dogs have been have been known to do that and drag me, but this time I did it on purpose. It was a little added reassurance that they wouldn't leave me behind!
Reggae and Anvik were happy lead dogs! Happy to get out and about again!
After weeks of cold, the weather forecast is for unseasonably warm temps this week, maybe even rain! I'll take more -30C over rain!! That's just gonna suck if it happens!
