Hiking AB Mountain above Skagway

This Sunday 6/20 so of us "Dog Camp" people hiked to the top of AB Mountain. It was a 6-hour hike round trip.
Svenna had a lot of fun running through the bushes trying to keep cool. It was 75*
Some very pretty flowers along the trail up in the alpine . . .

Another 12 hour day!

What a busy day! We ran 4 carts today instead of 2. It was a lot more moving dogs and people around. I had a lot of fun. For part of the 12 hour day I drove our guests up the hill in our 4X4 vans sharing information about the ride they were about to take with the dogs. There were a lot of really great people who came through. I am guessing without looking at the paper that we had over 300 people tour with us today. Many of them were heading down to Ketchikan on the cruise ship and I told them to say "Hi!" to all of you Ketchikanites!
The picture below shows a stretch of road that we run our 16-dog teams down.
I must retire for now because I will be getting up at 5:30am in order to make it to work at 6:45am. Have a great Wednesday!

Dog Camp

This is where all my dogs homes are in the forest on a hill - it sure is fun to feed and water!
This is one of the sleds we use to give rides. For the past two days we have only used 2, but tomorrow we will be using 4!

Today 6/14 we worked a 12 hour day. We gave 16 rides. My dogs ran 6 of them . . . it was a lot of work but tons of FUN!
