River Run

We started off 2011 with a run out of Athabasca on the Athabasca River.

Heading out of town

Richard and his team

Dasher and Meg in lead

My team - Jinx and Rocket; Tess and Bang; See and Roscoe; Q and Crunch; Wolvie and Barq; Shooter and Charge

Richard snacking his 'beasts'.

I love coming into Athabasca by dog team. It is the best view of the city there is!!

 Athabasca has a rich history of dog teams traveling on this river and I never fail to think about them as I come into the city - even if the Sears store is one of the first things seen now!

Richard coming back to the truck.

Mark was waiting in town with a nice meal for the dogs.

Another good day!!!

I love any view of your Athabasca---but must agree that from the river, in the winter, traveling by dogsled is truly the best.
