Christmas Eve Skijoring

Eric skijoring with Sobo and Okemo

Eric and I along with Maryland Sled Dog Adventures sled dogs, Acadia, Okemo and Sobo headed out for a seven mile skijor trip on the Northern Central Railroad (NCR) trail in northern Baltimore County. Snow conditions were deep and fairly untracked so the dogs worked hard pulling while the humans worked hard skiing.

Skijoring with Acadia

Acadia loves to make snow angels

This trip marked the sled dogs sixth day in a row that they had worked in harness either pulling the dog sled, giving dog sled rides or skijoring.

Eric wore his new pack since he is in training for our 100 Mile Wilderness ski/dog sled trip in Maine
