Dog Sledding

This year for my birthday we went dog sledding with Barking Brook kennels. It was very cool. When we drove up we got to meet all the very excited dogs. The a team of ten dogs pulled us along a rail trail in Warren, NH. The trail itself was kind of cool and begins at the Redstone Rocket in Warren, NH. The rocket is there in tribute to US Senator Norris Cotton, who was from Warren (more info at Wikipedia). Anyway, we went 6 miles in and then turned around after a hot cocoa break (track is mapped via Google My Tracks). It was really interesting and beautiful in the snow. I was surprised by how quiet it was too. I guess I expected not to be able to hear anything over the dogs and sled. When we returned, the dogs were calm and quiet. Neil's photos, beautiful as usual, are posted in our Gallery. Neil and I on the sled is also posted in our Gallery.
