It may be 60 degrees (maybe even 70) in town, but we're still running tours up here. We've got lots of snow, and it's not quite as hot up on the mountain. The temps and this sunshine make it a perfect time to go for a dog sled ride!

Just finished reading The Cruelest Miles, a book about the 1925 serum run to Nome. Excellent book! In 1929, The New York Times Magazine wrote of Togo, one of the lead dogs on the hardest part of the run, "Every once in a while a dog breaks through the daily routine of feeding and barking and tugging at a leash, and for some deed of super-canine heroism wins the adoring regard of everyone who hears of him."

"Other engines might break and choke, but that oldest of all motors, the heart [of both dog and musher], whose fuel is blood and whose spark is courage, never stalls but once."

Really great read! It'll have you entranced the whole way!

We got about 8 feet of snow up at the tour site in the last 10 days. You can expect some beautiful and soft dog sled rides!
