Dog Sledding in Farmington, Maine

Crackling Ice

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 Eric and I along with our southern musher friends, Ruth, Nick, Linda and Kevin headed over to Farmington, Maine for an 8 mile run on the multi use trail. We've enjoyed running on this trail, the Whistle Stop Rail Trail, in the past.

Running in lead were Zoe and Acadia followed in wheel by Sobo and Okemo. This nice and easy trail is a great place for a low key run. Along the way, we worked on fundamentals with the dogs such as "gee over."
