A Run in the Sun –

After an entire day of vet visits and physical exams in town yesterday (see photos here) both the dogs and the mushers were ready to get out and enjoy some sunshine and fun on the trails around our home!  And that is exactly what we did.  I had the camera with to document it all and share with you. And since a picture is worth a thousand words I will spare you my ramblings and just get right to the photos, enjoy!

The day begins with the dogs relaxing after their morning drink –

Then Dan and I started getting the teams ready to run –

Teams perk up when they see each other

This shot was taken on the fly as the teams slid past each other.
