This afternoon we have just arrived back from our little mini Yurt Expedition which involved us navigating thin bumpy trails, ice overflows which had both dogs, sleds and mushers slipping and sliding, snow banks which grabbed your sleds and tossed them around as well as trying to concentrate on drivng your sled and admiring the breathtaking scenery that surrounded us… The Yurt camp was tucked away in a delightful meadow and trust me nothing was left to chance on creature comforts… comfy beds, heating, insulated toilet seats, sauna, wine and the classic out of date magazines and board games that we all remember…..so after once again ‘stuffing our faces’ with yet another delicious home cooked meal, the night was rounded off by a mega game of UNO and dogs howling…

Needless to say, the day we awoke to was a perfect, blue sky, sunshine, snow, dogs, yummy food, great company, mountains and that sensationaly feeling of being out there in the wilderness… a quick stroll up one of the nearby summits for a ‘once in a lifetime view’ of the entire valley and then an afternoon of exploring and snowshoeing… can’t be beaten out here… today we awoke to the silence (other than the occasional howling dog we have become used to out here) to the silence that means one thing… fresh snow… the pine trees, yurts, sleds, snow shoes and dogs were all covered in a delightful fresh dusting of snow and the snow didn’t stop falling until we reached the hometead this afternoon… there is such incredible beauty in falling snow and cranking down some of those hills gives you that great daily adrenalin rush we all need!

Nothing topped the end of the day though with beuatiful clear blue skies, 66 happy dogs resting and a snow covered homestead to top of the 2011 AP dog sledding trip… we can only say… that this truly is a little gem of a trip to one of the remaining wilderness areas in the world… hell, we didn’t see a wolf, but we saw plent of tracks 🙂 Bring on 2012! Its a rush!
