Glacier National Park in Montana

First time mushing dogs?

Before her first run around the course, my wife gets some instructions from the sled owners. These sled dogs are so powerful that just two dogs can pull a grown man for hours. The reason you usually see a team of (4, 6 or 8) dogs is to distribute the work and permit dogs to share the burden and run further between rest stops.
