Year of the Pig
Dog sled ride
Whilst in Oregon for Christmas we had a dog sled ride on Mt. Bachelor (10,000ft) in the Cascade Mountains, near to Bend. Eight Alaskan Huskies pulled the sled for about an hour, capable of pulling 3 adults and a musher. About 100 dogs were available for the day's rides and were very anxious to be selected, the associated barking deafening. Our musher told us that she selected brainy dogs for the front four, the back four containing the scatter brains!
