Heading North

The trail ahead

After a long President's Day weekend of dog sledding programs, the sled dogs of Maryland Sled Dog Adventures are preparing to head north for a couple of days in Harmony, Maine (let's hope they are harmonious) at Lumberjack Lodges.

After our brief stop over in Maine, Eric and I along with the whole Maryland Sled Dog Adventures canine crew will spend two full weeks mushing, skijoring, snowshoeing, and relaxing at Baisley Lodges in St. Jacques, New Brunswick. I can hear T-Bone warming up his rendition of "O'Canada."

While dog sledding up in Canada, we will venture back into the United States for the weekend of February 28th to meet up and visit with friends and fellow mushers, including our Canadian host, Gino Roussel, who will be racing in the Can Am Crown International Sled Dog Races in Fort Kent, Maine.

As we embark on this wonderful dog sledding adventure, I thought I would share with you some photos from last year's dog sledding trip to Canada. Stay tuned as we hope to post updated blog entries of our adventures as we travel.

Here we come, Canada!
